This session will examine the Church’s teaching on justified war. First, we will consider the historical approaches toward war and peace in Christian tradition and their value. Secondly, attention will be given to the criteria as found in recent official pastoral letters of the Catholic bishops in the United States and the Catechism of the Ukrainian Greco Catholic Church. Third, participants can then discuss the application of the tradition to the most recent invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation.
Dr. Robert Marko is professor emeritus of theology at Aquinas and was a US Fulbright Scholar at the Ukrainian Catholic University in 2008 and 2015. His most recent teaching there in 2019 was a course in their Licentiate program on War and Militant Non-Violence.
