The Common Good

Life and Peace

Because all life is a sacred gift from God, we must defend and promote practices and policies that protect life and promote human rights, human flourishing, and peaceful solidarity.  Because Jesus calls us to be peacemakers, to be agents of reconciliation, and to love our enemies, we work to reconcile relationships, reduce violence, and resolve political and social conflict.
