Dr. Bernice King- Feb 2021

Dr. Bernice King is not just anyone; she is the daughter of the late Martin Luther King Jr. who together with her mother, runs the King center in educating and training people, especially in the philosophy of non-violence. Imagine if we live in a nonviolent world, wouldn’t there be peace? She shares much of her father’s quotes inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ, and that is to love one another. Doing so would be a nonviolent act that could make a world difference against the triple evils according to Martin Luther King Jr, her father. Supporting her father’s stand, she teaches us the true power of non-violence and how you can break the cycle of violence to help achieve the vision of the community. If you’re a true follower of Jesus Christ, tune in to this podcast.

● The true power of nonviolence transcends time, which is its ability to create and keep cohesion within humanity because of its insistence on maintaining respect for the dignity and worth of human personhood.
● The power of non-violence is its ability to resist evil and injustice with discipline and dignity to destroy evil and injustice.
● My father also reminds us that our survival as humanity depends on our ability to solve the problems that occur as a result of these evils.

Bio:
Bernice Albertine King (born March 28, 1963) is an American minister and the youngest child of civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King.[1] She was five years old when her father was assassinated. In her adolescence, King chose to work towards becoming a minister after having a breakdown from watching a documentary about her father. King was 17 when she was invited to speak at the United Nations. Twenty years after her father was assassinated, she preached her trial sermon, inspired by her parents’ activism.
King became CEO of the King Center only months afterward. King’s primary focus as CEO of The King Center and in life is to ensure that her father’s nonviolent philosophy and methodology (which The King Center calls Nonviolence 365) is integrated in various sects of society, including education, government, business, media, arts and entertainment and sports. King believes that Nonviolence 365 is the answer to society’s problems and promotes it being embraced as a way of life. King is also the CEO of First Kingdom Management, a Christian consulting firm based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Mairead Corrigan did not give up hope even when the Peace People lost nearly all their support in the late 1970s. She kept up her local peace work with admirable strength.

Bio:
Mgr. Bruno-Marie Duffé is the secretary of the newly created Dicastery Promoting Integral Human Development. This Dicastery of the Roman Curia combined the work of four Pontifical Councils established following the Second Vatican Council: Justice and Peace, Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers, and Cor Unum. Within the Curia, FIAMC is therefore subordinate to this Dicastery (and not to the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life).

Mgr. Bruno-Marie Duffé, a French professor from Lyon, with long experience in human rights and relief work, was one of the keynote speakers during the FIAMC Congress in Zagreb, where Prof. Dr. Bernard Ars was elected as the new president.
