Seek Peace and Pursue It

This morning at  Daily Gracelines I found this quote from a well-beloved saint, Francis of Assisi:

"While you are proclaiming
peace with your lips, be careful
to have it even more fully in 
 your heart."

What is the opposite of peace? Anger? There's a lot of that going around these days. I avoid reading the news, it is so full of anger - angry quotes from angry people sharing their anger at events staged to increase the anger. 

Anger is a luxury we cannot afford in a world filled with nuclear bombs. Pray for peace, speak peace, hope for peace in people of power - the alternative is too terrible to contemplate.
