WHAT IS PEACE?

“Peace is a virtue born out of the strength of the heart.”

–Spinoza

Let’s think this out in reverse.  Peace is no war, pain, hostility, turmoil, anxiety and so forth.

If we think like Saint Augustine, “Peace is the tranquility of order.”  What kind of order is this a part of our chaotic world?  The order of Love is what is needed to make peace happen.

“Peace is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

–Nathaniel Hawthorne

People, we become the blessings of peace by ordering our lives in Love for God.

May this week’s transition into September bring you much peace and love.
