Dr. Lisa Sowle Cahill, Professor of Theology at Boston College, one of the leaders of last April’s Vatican 3-day International Symposium on Nonviolence and Just Peace will speak on the symposium and the Catholic Church's likely future positions.  The symposium recommended that the Catholic Church drop its teaching of “Just War Theory” and endorse a policy of nonviolence with a teaching from the Pope.  In response, Pope Francis issued a statement on January 1, the World Day of Peace in the Catholic Church, calling for all to embrace a policy of “active nonviolence” and no more war.
