Bearing Witness to the Peace of Christ

Bishop Gabino Zavala, the bishop-president of Pax Christi USA: National Catholic Peace Movement and an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, wrote a column being circulated by the Catholic News Service marking the fifth anniversary of the U.S. War on Iraq. He starts his column by noting:
