“What we believe, where we are, and how we live out our faith can make a great difference in the struggle against violence. We see the loss of lives. We serve the victims. We feel the fear. We must confront this growing culture of violence with a commitment to life, a vision of hope and a call to action.”---Confronting a Culture of Violence: A Catholic Framework for Action,1994 Pastoral Message of the U.S. Catholic Bishops.
