Islands of PEACE arise


"The infinite distance between God and man
is overcome. ... He has truly 'come down',
He has come into the world, He has become one of us,
in order to draw all of us to Himself. ...

He has truly built islands of peace
in the world-encompassing breadth of the Holy Eucharist.  
Wherever it is celebrated, an island of peace arises,
of God's own peace. This Child has ignited the light
of goodness in men and has given them strength to
overcome the tyranny of might. This Child builds
His kingdom in every generation from within,
from the heart."

Pope Benedict XVI
