WE STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE OF PITTSBURGH
Statement issued by Pax Christi USA

The following statement was issued by Pax Christi USA in response to the anti-Semitic crime committed in Pittsburg on Saturday, October 27; as members of Pax Christi USA, the Dominican Sisters of Houston echo this statement. 

 Pax Christi USA offers prayers and stands in solidarity with the families and community of the 11 people who were shot and killed while attending the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday in Pittsburgh.  Anti-Semitism and hatred have no place in this country.  It is astounding that the US can experience massacres of this level, and policymakers still do not legislate comprehensive gun control solutions. Pax Christi USA will keep repeating that the US needs sensible gun control and antiracist policies until legislators prioritize human welfare over power and gain.  Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN, Executive Director of Pax Christi USA, said, “Because PCUSA is grounded in the Gospel and Catholic Social Teaching, it rejects every form of violence and domination.  Every person is a reflection of the image of God regardless of their religious beliefs, race, and social economic status.”  The words we say either create a more peaceful, just and sustainable world or they create separation, hatred, and violence. We call upon our leaders and we encourage our communities to embrace and embody nonviolence in word, policy, and action.
