“We must all believe in love and in peace. We must believe in the power of love. We must recognize that our being itself is grounded in love.”

Thomas Merton.  Honorable Reader: 136

“Love and truth will meet; justice and peace will kiss.”  Psalm 85: 11

The Peaceable Kingdom by Henri Nouwen

.
All of creation belongs together in the arms of its Creator.  The final vision is that not only will all men and women recognise that they are brothers and sisters called to live in unity but all members of God’s creation will come together in complete harmony.  Jesus the Christ came to realise that vision.  Long before he was born, the prophet Isaiah saw it:

The wolf will live with the lamb,
the panther lie down with the kid,
calf, lion and fat-stock beast together,
with a little boy to lead them.
The cow and the bear will graze,
their young will lie down together.
The lion will eat hay like the ox.
The infant will play over the den of the adder;
the baby will put his hand into the viper’s lair.
No hurt, no harm will be done
on all my holy mountain,
for the country will be full of knowledge of Yahweh
as the waters cover the sea.

– Isaiah 11:6-9

We must keep this vision alive.
