Pax Christi, the international Catholic movement for peace that is promoting Peace Sunday, has produced a variety of online and paper resources to celebrate Pope Francis’ theme.  National President Archbishop Malcolm McMahon says in his message to parishes: “This year has been one of the unprecedented and continuing challenges. We are all conscious of the need to restore and rebuild our communities here and around the world, accepting that we need new ways of working and relating to each other.   The Christian message of peace, through reconciliation, justice and nonviolence, can offer hope and direction in these times.  I invite you to seriously consider facilitating a collection for, or making a donation to, the work of Pax Christi at this time as a way to make a practical contribution to continuing the work of peace.
