PCT Solidarity with Palestine

Pax Christi Toronto joins other peace groups in calling for nonviolence, a just peace, and freedom and security for both Israeli and Palestinian peoples. We join Pope Francis in his view of war as “an aimless voyage, a defeat without victory, an inexcusable folly”.(Christmas Message, 2023). We call for an immediate and enduring Ceasefire to be followed by the long, difficult process of dialogue and healing which can lead to the imagining and creation of a just settlement of conflict and a just peace for both Israel and Palestine.
