WHY THE PEACE OF CHRIST IS THE
REMEDY FOR POLITICAL DISCORD
Politics tends to divide, in families and nations.
This is distressing, with the quest for peace
among political parties seeming out of reach.
What is the remedy for this division?
Pope Pius XI believed it was the peace of Jesus Christ.
As he explained in his encyclical, Ubi Arcano.
"First, and most important of all, for mankind
is the need of spiritual peace.
We do not need a peace
that will consist merely
in acts of external or formal courtesy,
but a peace which will
penetrate the souls of men
and which will unite, heal, and reopen
their hearts to that mutual affection
which is born of brotherly love."
