To Pass on Peace

Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OPThe Gift of Wisdom corresponds to the beatitude of the peacemakers (Mt 5:9), who, in the midst of all that might trouble them, preserve deep peace, the tranquillity of order, so as to communicate it to others. They are accustomed to contemplate all things in God, unforeseen and most painful events, as well as those that are most consoling. This gift is bestowed on us according to the measure of our charity, by virtue of its intimate connection with charity.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
