With the passing in Rome of the former Archbishop of Boston, Bernard Cardinal Law, the Major Superiors of Men of the United States again affirm their wholehearted support for the victims of sexual abuse by clergy and religious, and apologize for the sins and crimes of our brothers.
The NAC is an independent panel of nationally recognized experts who volunteer their time and which advises CMSM on all matters related to the protection of minors for religious institutes of men in and throughout the United States. Dr. Len Sperry will replace Dr. Kathleen McChesney as Chair and Steve Levatino will replace Dr. Rolando Diaz.
As Catholic religious leaders in the U.S., CMSM is sick with grief and disgust at the recent decision by the administration to put children and young people in abrupt uncertainty by ending DACA.
CMSM Celebrates the Common Brotherhood in Religious Life, Elects Officers, and Approves Resolution on Nonviolence
The annual assembly of CMSM, representing more than 17,000 Catholic religious brothers and priests in the United States, was held August 1–4, 2017, in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Extending the fruit and work of the Nonviolence and Just Peace conference in Rome 2016, this resolution commits and calls members of the CMSM to “use both our individual charisms and experience as religious leaders to 1) significantly build up nonviolent practices and a culture of nonviolence; and 2) to invite Pope Francis to offer an encyclical on nonviolence, which would include a shift to a just peace approach for transforming conflict.”
