A Prayer for Disarmament


Let us not tire of preaching love: it is the force that will overcome the world. Let us not tire of preaching love.
Though we see that waves of violence succeed in drowning the fire of Christian love, love must win out; it is the only thing that can.
—Archbishop Oscar Romero, July 23, 1978
