Tese three orbs can be summed up as the struggleto connect with the God o lie. We pray that Cher-ith Brook is a space where all o us—the broken—can come to learn and relearn the ways o Jesus;a place to struggle together or God’s call o love,mercy, peace and justice.

“Wherever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediatelysought to convict them or being “disturbers o the peace” and “outside agitators.” But they wenton with the conviction that they were “a colony o heaven,” and had to obey God rather than [humanbeings]....Tings are dierent now. Te contemporarychurch is oten a weak, ineectual voice with anuncertain sound. It is so oten the arch-supportero the status quo. Far rom being disturbed by the presence o the church, the power structure o theaverage community is consoled by the church’s si-lent and oten vocal sanction o things as they are.”

O Lord, Psalm 139 sings,“I I sink down to the netherworld,Or go to the urthermost limits o the sea,You are there, holding me in your right hand.” Tat you always securely hold me in your hand Daily strengthens me here at Cherith Brook. IF I welcome someone whose ragged clothesSmellourine,hisbreathoalcohol,youarethere. I I eed a brooding stranger who is ungrateul,Complains about the ood, you are there. I I go to clean the toilets, dirty showers,Or any unpleasant task, you are there.When a companion in our house is rude, And their conduct irritates me, In him or her, you are there.When we gather or communal prayer, And I, not eeling prayerul, only pretend,You are there, holding me in your hand.When I eel no joy in helping others,Harbor judgments against those I serve,Even then, you are there.Cradled in your hand, let your ngersCreatively knead me to greatness, As they once did your son Jesus,O Lord, may my time at Cherith Brook,Serving the needs o the poorPrepare me in unexpected waysFor what’s next or me in my lie,Condent, you’ll be there. Amen. As catholic workers, we believe that personal and social transormation should be pursued by themeans Jesus revealed in His sacricial love. WithChrist as our Exemplar, by prayer and communionwith His Body and Blood, we strive or the practiceo Nonviolence.“Blessed are the peacemakers, or they shall becalled children o God.” (Matt. 5:9) Only throughnonviolent action can a personalist revolution comeabout, one in which one evil will not be replaced simply by another. Tus, we oppose the deliberatetaking o human lie or any reason, and see everyoppression as blasphemy. Jesus taught us to takesuering upon ourselves rather than infict it uponothers, and He calls us to ght against violencewith the spiritual weapons o prayer, asting and noncooperation with evil. Reusal to pay taxes orwar, to register or conscription, to comply withany unjust legislation; participation in nonviolentstrikes and boycotts, protests or vigils; withdrawalo support or dominant systems, corporate unding or usurious practices are all excellent means toestablish peace.

On August 16th, 100 people stepped onto the uture site o KC’s Nuclear Weapons Plant,and this is what transpired.

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, i a personclaims to have aith but has no deeds? Can suchaith save him or her? Suppose a brother or sisteris without clothes and daily ood. I one o you saysto that person, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well ed,” but does nothing about his or her physicalneeds, what good is it? In the same way, aith by it-sel, i it is not accompanied by action, is dead. Butsomeone will say, “You have aith; I have deeds.”

We are gathered today, August 16, 2010, at thesite o the uture nuclear weapons production plantin Kansas City, Missouri, to protest the continued manuacture o U.S. nuclear weapons.We also denounce the existence o the currentKansas City acility, where 85% o the non-nuclearcomponents or the U.S. nuclear arsenal are pro-duced, and demand its closure and clean-up.Te current plant and the uture plant threatenthe health and well-being o workers, our environ-ment and the Kansas City community. Te new plant is the recipient o unding by the city govern-ment through the explicit misdirection o undsintended or the improvement o urban blight.Te 1970 Nuclear Nonprolieration reatyrequires an end to all planning, preparation, production, threat, or use o nuclear weapons and adherence to the undamental rules and principleso Humanitarian Law. Further, ratied treatiesare enshrined by the U.S. Constitution as supremelaws o the land. Building the rst new U.S. nuclearweapons production acility in 32 years is in obviousviolation o these laws.Te cardinal rules and principles o humanitar-ian law require that civilians never be the objecto attack and prohibit weapons that are incapableo distinguishing between civilians and militarytargets.Te International Court o Justice ound thatthe destructive power o nuclear weapons cannotbe contained in either space or time, and nuclearweapons have the potential to destroy all civiliza-tion and the entire ecosystem o the planet, and thus are illegal. In keeping with the Nuremburg Principles, we choose to act nonviolently ratherthan be complicit.Te intended use o the new Kansas City Plant isto improve and extend the lie o nuclear weapons. Any complicity in planning, preparation, threaten-ing to use or use o these weapons is a crime against peace, war crime and crime against humanity.Under principles o democracy we exercise theright o every citizen o this republic and this planetto peaceully resist the nuclear threat that attacksevery core concept o human rights.We act to exercise our basic rights to lie and reedom rom violence and we exercise our duty to protect children and uture generations.We act to ensure that our government ulllsits promise and responsibilities to unequivocally pursue and achieve nuclear disarmament in good aith.We call on national, state and local Kansas City government to end the use o our tax dollars towage permanent war and demand clean-up o allchemical and radioactive contamination.
