ABSTRACT
This article presents the views of the new generation of Catholic bishops in the U.S. about maintaining peace in the world. The new generation of bishops is different from the old generation in the way it thinks about peace. Bishop Thomas Gumbleton of Detroit, Michigan, says that opposition to nuclear arms and violence, is a spiritual conversion, not a logical experience. Bishop Raymond Lucker of New Ulm, Minnesota, says that some bishops who spoke about peace issues were thought to be a little anti-American. He says that now more people have realized that they have to deal with the issue of nuclear arms.
