In the account of Our Lord’s nativity found in St. Luke’s Gospel, the King James Bible reports the proclamation of the angels to the shepherds in these words; “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men” (Lk2:14). The Douay Challoner translation reads as follows: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men of good will.” If we were to compare these two versions with St. Jerome’s    Vulgate   translation, or more tellingly with St. Luke’s original Greek, it would be quickly evident to us that the Douay version (i.e., the Catholic Version) is the faithful one.  It unambiguously presents to us what the original Greek unambiguously states.

There is no small difference between a message which announces peace and good will to men, and a message which announces peace to men of good will.  Besides the not insignificant fact that the second message is the correct one, it is also, as is true of all messages from God, considerably more interesting and challenging than the first. The true message specifies a condition, comparable to the condition which we find in the Lord’s Prayer.  In that prayer we are apprised of the fact that our being forgiven by God depends upon our willingness to forgive others. The angels from on high advised the shepherds, and by extension all of us, that we will experience peace on this earth just to the extent that we are deserving of experiencing peace.  God is telling us, through His messengers the angels, what He everywhere tells us when He instructs us on the particulars of our salvation --- that we must do our part.

Just as God will not force His love upon us, neither will He force His peace upon us. We must be men of good will with regard to peace. This means, simply, that we must actively will it. We must be open to peace, accepting of it. The peace of God may descend upon the earth like manna, but we must bestir ourselves and go out and gather it up.  Then we must assimilate it.

The peace of God is that peace which surpasses all human understanding, the peace which the world cannot give. It has often been said, and correctly said, that peace is not simply the absence of war, internal or external. Peace is not mere negation.  It is something positive. We sometimes think we are pursuing peace when in fact we are chasing after nothing but a vapid harmony. Peace, St. Thomas Aquinas reminds us, includes harmony, but it is not the same thing as harmony.  You can have harmony among thugs, but no peace.

What is peace? It is, in St. Thomas’ pointed and lovely phrase, “the tranquility of order.” The tranquility of order – the kind of order which results when everything is in its proper place, and everything is in its proper place because everything is directed to God. Peace does not just happen. Again, it must be willed. It is willed first and foremost by God, but if we are ever to possess the peace which god wills for us, we ourselves must will it, aligning our wills with His.

We will never possess peace if we insist upon seeking it where it can never be found, that is, anywhere else but in the “tranquility of order” which is brought into being when God is the focus and foundation of all that we do. Peace is not itself a virtue, St. Thomas teaches, but it is the direct effect of virtue, specifically the virtue of charity.  Peace is the possession of people of good will, of people who, because they love God above all else, know how truly to love their neighbors.  Such people see peace and love as naturally linked together, but for them love is not simply a diffuse, schmaltzy sense of cozy togetherness with a nebulous “humankind,” but a robust, active concern for the eternal welfare of one’s real, flesh and blood neighbor.

At the first Christmas, the one and only Christmas, the Prince of Peace came into the world to dwell among us.  In the world in which we live today the authentic Christmas is in a fight for its life against a clamorous host of false “Christmases.” Bedlam has replaced Bethlehem.  What is sterilely identified as the “holiday season” has become the very antithesis of a season of peace.  Now, “tis the season to be frantic.  From all sides we are bidden to join in on a madcap rushing about whose defining center seems to be little more than a binge of merchandising, a celebration of consumerism. There is a great deal of forced jollity, but little genuine merriness.  There is much gaudily packaged sentimentality, but not much real feeling.  One looks in vain for that exquisite kind of joy that springs forth only from an essential seriousness.  Christmas, as it is currently interpreted, has become the emblem of the winter of our spiritual discontent.  In the meantime, the Prince of Peace continues to dwell among us, looking for followers. “   +

IN CLOSING: We should always REMEMBER the words of St. Paul To Timothy Chapter 2: Verse 1 to 15.

 [1] I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men: [2] For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity. [3] For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, [4] Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. [5] For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus: [6] Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times. [7] Whereunto I am appointed a preacher and an apostle, (I say the truth, I lie not,) a doctor of the Gentiles in faith and truth. [8]I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger and contention.[9] In like manner women also in decent apparel: adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety, not with plaited hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly attire, [10] But as it becometh women professing godliness, with good works. [11] Let the woman learn in silence, with all subjection. [12] But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the man: but to be in silence. [13] For Adam was first formed; then Eve. [14]And Adam was not seduced; but the woman being seduced, was in the transgression. [15] Yet she shall be saved through childbearing; if she continue in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.
