Living Truth: A Spiritual Portrait of Pierre Ceresole

Living Truth: A Spiritual Portrait of Pierre Ceresole

$ 7.00

Pierre Ceresole (1879-1945) was the founder of the international work camp movement and a Friend imprisoned for defying his own government to bring a message of truth and peace to Germans and Italians in the world wars. Ceresole protested the churches' silence during wartime, met with Mussolini to discuss peaceful collaboration, and conceived of the healing and practical work of Service Civil International as a moral alternative to war. His actions show his spiritual growth as a passionate, poetic, solitary seeker of Truth who urges us "to set aside our theories and our fears, to take up the tools that are needed to create a more humane, just and peaceful world."
