ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the teachings of the Catholic Church about the war on terrorism in the U.S. The Catholic Church only accepts war as a last resort solution for an aggrieved state like an individual might employ self-defense. The just-war teaching of the bishops imposes restrictions on how a war is conducted. The prayer of Pope John Paul II a day after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack was for hatred and violence to not prevail.
