United Nations Dispatch: Martin Luther King and World Peace

Across First Avenue from the United Nations complex in New York is situated a park dedicated to Ralph Bunche, a friend and collaborator of Martin Luther King, Jr. Bunche, an African-American, was a man of astonishing achievement. In an era when his horizons were still limited by Jim Crow laws in the U.S., he became the U.N. Undersecretary General for Special Political Affairs and won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950. His friendship with Dr. King symbolized the integral connection King saw between civil rights at home and international peace. It is a vision very consonant with that of the Catholic Church.

UN Dispatch: Planting Seeds of the Kingdom

This winter and spring, Fr. Francis Belanger, OP is working with the Dominican Leadership Conference at their United Nations office in New York City. Attending various U.N. meetings and conferences – on human trafficking, on migration, on the question of Palestine, on clean energy, etc, the problems of the world can seem overwhelming. What can a few religious and their collaborators do against the great social and economic forces of the world? Yet Dominicans are preachers, and perhaps it is smallness that is the very power of the preacher. We can change the world by planting the seeds of the Kingdom of Heaven.
