Peace vs. Neutrality and Compromise

Jesus is our peace, He is reconciliation! But this peace is not neutrality, it is not compromise at any cost. This peace is not the peace of the grave! Following Jesus means renouncing evil, selfishness and choosing good, truth, justice, even when it requires sacrifice and renunciation of one’s own interests.

—Pope Francis

—8/18/13 during his Sunday Angelus message on the Gospel of St. Luke 12:49-53
