"If we are to be artisans of peace, our social context is our canvas, and our actions, responses and choices are our brush strokes. I don't know about you, but most of my opportunities for growing in nonviolence present themselves close to home — friends, family, coworkers, you name it."

—St. Joseph of Peace Sr. Susan Rose Francois, in "Nonviolence: A New Year's resolution," published on Global Sisters Report. Today, Jan. 1, is the World Day of Peace.
