Dom Helder Camara

My personal vocation is to be a pilgrim of peace . . . I would prefer a thousand times more to be killed than to kill anyone. This personal position is founded on the Gospel . . . We need only turn to the Beatitudes to see that the option for Christians is clear. We as Christians, are on the side of nonviolence and this is in no way an option for weakness and passivity. Opting for nonviolence means to believe more strongly in the power of truth, justice, and love than in the power of wars, weapons and hatred.
