SUNDAY QUOTE: Advent 2 - Peace

  "Without justice and love, peace will always be an illusion." ~ Dom Helder Camara  One of the big scripture passages for Christmas Eve is from the Book of Micah,  chapter 5: "As for you, Bethlehem...one who is to be a ruler in Israel on my behalf will come out from you."  But in the next chapter are the really important verses, the ones that carry forward into the new era and the new way, that carry forward into this century and remind us what we are required to do for peace, have always been required to do: "Seek justice, be loving, and walk humbly with your God."  There is nothing there about power or wealth. Nothing that encourages us to get more stuff or have control over others.  Absolutely no way to interpret that as "kill people".  Justice. Mercy. Humility. That's the path to peace.  ~ SJ
