Tuesday, December 4, 2007: (St. John of Damascus)

Jesus said: “My people, you could do more good for your people if you manufactured metal goods for civilian uses instead of making so many weapons for war. This vision of beating swords into plowshares is a good change to stop the profit for making weapons of war. Take the money incentive out of your wars and these weapons would be useless. Do not follow the war mongers who cry for more wars and threaten more regime changes for threats that your intelligence has found to be untrue. Work to make peace diplomatically without threats of war. It is time to bring your troops home while they are still alive. This is the best help that you could do for them. Senseless killings and continued bombings are not the reason to continue your constant wars. Say no to the rich who profit from war, or your civilization will cease to be free.”
