Take Heart!

A call to nonviolence

Father John Dear, vegetarian, jesuit priest, peace activist, lecturer, and writer of books on nonviolence, including Living Peace and Christianity and Vegetarianism, writes a compelling article advocating a life of nonviolence in remembrance and celebration of the 100th anniversary of Gandhi's satyagraha campaign in South Africa. Father Dear refers to Gandhi’s life when he says “For Gandhi, nonviolence surpasses the refusal to hurt or kill: nonviolence is active love, a force for social uplift. Indeed, he insisted, nonviolence is the most active and powerful force in the world. Since he saw it as the force of God, the method of God, the power of God at work for good, he concluded that nonviolence is more powerful than all nuclear weapons combined. If millions of Americans would practice it, would peacefully and actively resist war, disarmament would be assured.”

Adopting a plan-based diet is taking a stand against the cruelty and violence perpetrated on animals. A plant-based diet is one way of expressing God’s love through us toward God’s creation.
