Pax Christi USA recognizes Fr. Bryan Massingale as a Teacher of Peace
Pax Christi USA recognized Fr. Bryan Massingale, the theologian, author and scholar-activist as the 2021 recipient of the Pax Christi USA Teacher of Peace Award for his witness and leadership, his accompaniment and guidance of movements and organizations committed to the work of peace and social justice, and his promotion of the social mission of the gospel.
“Pax Christi enters the justice struggle through a particular lens, namely, a deep concern for peace and a decisive ‘no’ to violence. But these cannot be its exclusive focus if it is to not only accurately understand society but also effectively engage it,” Rev. Massingale said. “To remain relevant and on the frontier as a Catholic movement of peacemaking with justice, you must be perceived as not only antiwar and pro-nonviolence. You must also make explicit linkages between peacemaking, racism, consumerism, and ecological justice. And you had to be LGBTQ inclusive. This award today is a sign of the seriousness with which you engaged that challenge.”
