“I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace.” Philippians 1:7
O God, You gave us the grace to carry the sword of Your Kingdom of peace; and You made us messengers of peace in a world of strife, and messengers of strife in a world of false peace: make strong our hand, make clear our voice, give us humility with firmness and insight with passion, that we may fight, not to conquer, but to redeem.
Gregory Vlastos, 20th century
