From 1 Jan Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God and 46th World Day of Peace Day Homily
<b>”Although the world is sadly marked by “hotbeds of tension and conflict caused by
growing instances of inequality between rich and poor,
by the prevalence of a selfish and individualistic mindset
which also finds expression in
an unregulated financial capitalism,” </b>
as well as by various forms of terrorism and crime …
… the desire for peace corresponds to a fundamental moral principle, namely, the duty and right to an integral social and communitarian development, which is part of God’s plan for mankind. …
… It is peace with God through a life lived according to his will. It is interior peace with oneself, and exterior peace with our neighbours and all creation …
… peace is the supreme good to ask as a gift from God and, at the same time, that which is to be built with our every effort.”
