Marked for Life
Marked for Life tells the story of Hildegard Goss-Mayr, an Austrian Catholic pioneer in teaching the philosophy and practice of nonviolence amidst great historical events of the past half century World War II, the Cold War, revolutionary struggles against colonialism and dictatorship, the Second Vatican Council, breakthroughs in interfaith understanding and collaboration, and resistance to the arms race. Hers is the authentic, nonviolent life.

Kurtz Professor of Sociology and Peace Studies, The University of Texas) If the Nobel Peace Prize were mine to give, I would give it to Hildegard and Jean Goss-Mayr. They have deeply touched my life. (Archbishop Dom Helder Camara) Hildegard and Jean went about the world in the manner of the first apostles, on fire with sowing good seeds that would nurture the Kingdom. (Eileen Egan) Catholic Relief Services and Pax Christi Hildegard Goss-Mayr is my candidate for sainthood. (Thomas Merton)
