- Ten Steps Towards Cultivating a Culture of Peace
Almighty God, the source of all our good.
You call us from oppression and conflict
to freedom and cooperation for the good of all.
Help people everywhere to build a world of peace
ever more solidly established on the four pillars:
truth, justice, love and freedom.
Pope John Paul II, Pacem in Terris: A Permanent Commitment,
Message for World Peace Day 2003
May God banish from our hearts whatever might endanger
May God transform us into witnesses of truth, justice and love.
May God enlighten the rulers of peoples
so that in addition to their solicitude for the proper welfare
of their citizens,
they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace.
May God enkindle the will of all,
so that they may overcome the barriers that divide,
cherish the bonds of mutual charity, understand others,
and pardon those who have done them wrong.
May all peoples of the earth become as one,
and may the most longed-for peace blossom forth
and reign always among them.
Pope John XXIII Pacem in Terris
