Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord

Pacem in Terris

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

In these days when there is so much violence around us, it is worth reading again the prophetic words of St. John XXIII in Pacem in Terris.

“Peace on Earth—which man throughout the ages has so longed for and sought after—can never be established, never guaranteed, except by the diligent observance of the divinely established order.

That a marvelous order predominates in the world of living beings and in the forces of nature, is the plain lesson which the progress of modern research and the discoveries of technology teach us. And it is part of the greatness of man that he can appreciate that order and devise the means for harnessing those forces for his own benefit.

But what emerges first and foremost from the progress of scientific knowledge and the inventions of technology is the infinite greatness of God Himself, who created both man and the universe. Yes, out of nothing He made all things, and filled them with the fullness of His own wisdom and goodness. Hence, these are the words the holy psalmist used in praise of God: “O Lord, our Lord: how admirable is thy name in the whole earth!” And elsewhere he says: “How great are thy works, O Lord! Thou hast made all things in wisdom.”
