Nonviolence Article by Sister Anne McCarthy published in online journal

Sister Anne McCarthy is one of several contributing authors to EXPOSITIONS, an on-line journal where scholars from multiple disciplines gather to converse about common texts and questions in the humanities. The current issue of the journal (Volume 13, No 2) unfolds the theme: The Future of Nonviolence in Catholic Social Teaching.

Sister Anne’s article is titled: “Nonviolence: Building Gospel-based Communities Addressing Situations of Violence Today.” In her words: “In this article, I will reflect on the Gospel basis for nonviolence and Catholic social teaching . . . . With the context of the Beatitudes as the overall program, I will examine each of the seven principles of Catholic social teaching articulated by the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) and then give a few examples of both the teaching and actions of Jesus which exemplify that principle.”
