Kerstboodschap van Pax Christi International

Kerstwensen van de Pax Christi-familie, bij monde van Greet Vanaerschot, algemeen secretaris van Pax Christi International.

Dear friends,

On this day when we celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace, we give thanks for all of the ways that you are the “Pax Christi”, the peace of Christ in the world. We carry forward that peace that was born in that stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago whenever we act for justice, practice nonviolence, cultivate reconciliation and proclaim peace. Together, we are Pax Christi.

All of us at the International Secretariat wish you a peaceful and joyful Christmas!

Greet Vanaerschot
Secretary General, Pax Christi International

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among people,
To make music in the heart.

~Howard Thurman
