US bishops’ committee chairman calls for progress in nuclear disarmament
September 14, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: Commenting on the lack of consensus at a recent UN nuclear nonproliferation conference, Bishop David Malloy of Rockford (IL), chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace, said that “we are one miscalculation away from catastrophe.”
“Fundamentally it is the enmity found in the human heart that is at the root of such conflict and hostility to which the Church proclaims Christ Jesus as the remedy to humankind,” he continued. “We pray that all nations will work to foster trust over suspicion and to bring about immediate and measurable progress towards disarmament and lasting peace.”
