Historic Day for Nuclear Disarmament. In 1984 the Aberdeen Presentation Sisters took a corporate stand on nuclear disarmament: “We are women who value life as a sacred gift of our Creator. Nuclear weapons threaten to destroy life. Moreover, available resources which could be used to free the poor from oppression are now being allocated for the building of nuclear weapons….We believe we are morally obligated to oppose the possession of nuclear weapons.”
We want to share this Historic moment and ask for prayers and actions for peace in our world community. Peace of our Nonviolent God be with everyone.
Gratefully yours, Sister Kay O’Neil for Presentation Sisters Social Justice Team
