Marquette features Terry Rynne's contribution to Pope Francis' address

Prior to the new year, Marquette Today released a story on Marquette alumnus, Peace Studies instructor, and Center for Peacemaking co-founder, Terry Rynne. He was one of 80 participants in a conference at the Vatican last April focusing on gospel nonviolence. The results of this conference were sent to Pope Francis and served as the impetus of the Pope's New Year's Day address on nonviolence.
