(Español) Por una Navidad de Paz

For humanity to carry on

we need to have the courage to “invent peace”.

Of course we’ve asked ourselves:

Where do the kamikazes get the radicality

such a terrible choice as theirs requires?

Shouldn’t we be ready to give even our life

for the great ideal of love of God and love of neighbor.

Every person can love

because brotherly love is written in our DNA.

The brotherhood that Jesus brought on earth would then flower everywhere.

He became our brother, and made us all brothers and sisters to one another.

Perhaps Divine Providence

makes use of destructive situations

to spark an unexpected moral jumpstart

and unleash unimagined energy

with which to build a whole new peace

and allow humanity to breath again.

Chiara Lubich
