In January of 2022, Most Reverend John C. Wester, Archbishop of Santa Fe, New Mexico, released a new pastoral letter on nuclear disarmament: "We need to sustain a serious conversation in New Mexico and across the nation about universal, verifiable nuclear disarmament. We can no longer deny or ignore the dangerous predicament we have created for ourselves with a new nuclear arms race, one that is arguably more dangerous than the past Cold War."

The Archdiocese of Santa Fe has a special webpage dedicated to the pastoral letter that includes the full text, including Spanish, Korean, and Japanese translations, as well as other related news and resources.
