"Whatever the turmoil, whatever the divisions among humankind, whatever the
violence, the followers of Jesus can refuse to be moved from his transcendent message of
peace. May there come a time when the church, as a peace church without any ties to
violence, may greet the human family with the words, Peace be with you.'"
Eileen Egan, co-founder of Pax Christi USA, died on October 7, 2000.
