During the social turmoil of the late 1960s, and the movement for peace at home and abroad, Pope Paul VI said “If you want peace, work for justice.” The same holds true today. If we work for justice by feeding the hungry, paying a living wage, making clothing, shelter and healthcare reasonably available to all, ministering to prisoners, caring for the elderly and infirm, speaking with love and empathy, offering counsel and comfort, providing affordable education, shunning excessive materialism, preserving the environment, respecting the human and civil rights of others, and so forth, we foster peace in the world. In another famous quote by a great promoter of peace and justice, Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
