The price of peace

The price of peace

A reminder from the late Thomas Merton, on the fourth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

"Peace demands the most heroic labour and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience."

From Thomas Merton on Peace
