QUOTATION: Inner Peace

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
True peace is born of the tranquility of order, wherein the senses are subject to the reason, the reason to faith, and the whole personality to the Will of God. The true peace that follows conversion is deepened, not disturbed, by the crosses, checks, and disquietudes of the world, for they are welcomed as coming from the hands of the Loving Father. This true peace can never come from adjustment to the world, for if the world is wicked, adjustments to wickedness make us worse. IT comes only from identification of one’s own will with the Will of God.

--Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, Peace of Soul, 1949
