Voice of the Day: John Dear on Nonviolence

By Administrator 02-22-2007

Nonviolence confronts systematic injustice with active love, but refuses to retaliate with further violence under any circumstances. In order to halt the vicious cycles of violence, it requires a willing acceptance of suffering and death rath than inflicting suffering or death on anyone else.

- John Dear

excerpt from "Living Peace: A Spirituality of Contemplation and Action."
