Faculty Travel Immersion Seminar 2016

Catholic Diplomacy and Peacemaking in a Time of Endless War

Rome & Assisi - January 11-18th, 2016


"Peace is our Profession." —Strategic Air Command
"There is no way to peace–peace is the way." —A.J. Muste
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you." —Jesus Christ
"Make me a channel of your peace." —Song of St. Francis

In this seminar to Rome and Assisi, faculty explored what the Catholic tradition has to say to the world, a world of seemingly endless war, and about peacemaking. This seminar explored the practical and theoretical tools the Catholic Church has used and can use to engage international conflict as well as local conflict.

The Catholic Church has a rich body of teachings on peace, from the practical directives of the just war theory to the pacifism of Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement. How can this tradition help inform current discussions?
