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.”
