The Cause of Peace—Pope Pius XII
…To serve the cause of peace is to serve Justice.

To serve the cause of peace is to serve the interests of the people, especially the lowly and dispossessed. To serve the cause of peace is to face the future with serene and unruffled countenance. To serve the cause of peace is to hasten the day when all nations without exception shall lay aside their rivalries and feuds, and embrace one another as brothers. To serve the cause of peace is to save civilization. To serve the cause of peace is to preserve the human family from new and unutterable misfortunes; it is to lift men’s minds to heaven and to snatch them from the power of Satan. To serve the cause of peace is to fulfill the sovereign law of God, which is a law of bountiful good- ness and love. (Excerpt from the Knights of Columbus Magazine, 1956)
