King Pastoral Discussion


The Enduring Power of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Principles of Nonviolence

Welcome to the discussion forum for Archbishop William E. Lori’s pastoral letter, “The Enduring Power of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Principles of Nonviolence.” 

In his letter, Archbishop Lori asks Catholics to reflect on ways they can heal the racial divide and respond to injustice in peaceful, loving ways.

How do you foster understanding and justice? What more can be done in our parishes, schools, ministries, families, government and the wider community? What ideas do you have for implementing Dr. King’s principles in the Archdiocese of Baltimore?
