3. Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Peace

Mary is the Mother of Jesus.  Jesus is the Son of God made man.  Hence, Mary is the Mother of God.

In 431 the Council of Ephesus declared Mary as Mother of God or “Theotokos” (God-bearer).

Blessed Pope Paul VI declared in 1974 January 1 of every year as a World Day of Prayer for Peace.

Peace is “harmony.”  “Tranquillity of Order.”  The order is: first, God; second, spiritual, moral, intellectual, artistic, etc. values; third, material things.  When money is preferred over honesty, there is unpeace.

St. John XXIII stated in “Peace on Earth” that the four pillars of peace are: truth, justice, love and freedom.

Pope Francis on World Day of Peace said: “overcome indifference and win peace.”
