Dominicans for Peace and Justice

When I pray for peace,
I pray not only that the enemies of my own country may cease to want war,
but above all that my own country will cease to do the things that make war inevitable.

– Thomas Merton

Dominican Sisters demonstrating at the School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia

We pray for peace.
We pray for an end to violence and the teaching of violence.
Let us not study war any more.
We pray for all those who will be gathered this weekend at Fort Benning.
We pray for those who ask that we close the School of the Americas.
We pray for those who will cross the line.
