Living Your Faith as Citizens and Leaders in Politics, Culture, Society and Business

Jan 1..World Day of Peace. How do you think peace and poverty are connected?

Each year, the Holy Father releases a statement on peace to celebrate the World Day of Peace. The connections between Poverty and Peace are the basis of this year’s statement for January 1, 2009.  The US Catholic Bishops have set up a website with ideas regarding peace and poverty.  Visit this website for links to Pope Benedict XVI’s 2009 World Day of Peace Statement and the US Bishops website to continue our work in poverty reduction and peace building.

What do you think are the connections between peace and poverty?  What ideas do you have to build peace?
