Blessed are the Pink-Vested Peacemakers

Father Chris Ablon

How can we become peacemakers? In the Philippines, the church’s radical mission of accompaniment and solidarity is landing its Bishops in jail, but it’s also shining a light on the unjust practices of mining corporations and a government which sees indigenous communities as expendable. Father Chris Ablon shares how he was inspired by his experiences in Palestine, why the church must get political, and why we must all become peacemakers in our own contexts.

Father Chris is a priest and core group member of the Philippine Ecumenical Peace Platform, working on peace processes and conflict transformation.
