“The peace of God it is no peace, but strife closed in the sod. Yet let us pray for but one thing — the marvelous peace of God.” — William Alexander Percy

“If we want peace we must work for justice. Justice is the root of peace just as peace is its fruit. Equity demands that the goods of this world be justly distributed; that equal opportunities be provided for all to enjoy the economic and social benefits that the world has to offer; and that we give each person his due. We cannot lull our conscience by giving to others in charity what is in fact due to them in justice. A culture of peace is built on justice.”  —  Cardinal Paul Poupard

“But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”  —  Amos 5:24

    If you are experiencing a trial and desire to keep a joyous attitude, an understanding mind, and a submissive will, but are still struggling, you probably lack the wisdom and the power to endure. You need wisdom–the practical insight needed to face the circumstances of life. You’ll not be able to maintain the first three elements of a living faith unless God gives you more than just your human faculties to work with.

  • Stewart Parrish says:

    The quoted above my desk reads,” Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”
    See also John 16:33.
