Advent Day 23: Peace of Earth

O come, desire of Nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind.
Bid thou our sad divisions cease
And be thyself our King of Peace.

In Luke's gospel, the coming of Jesus is immediately linked to peace when the angels sing their message to the shepherds. As a year plagued by violence draws to its close, people of faith are praying for the peace our world so desperately needs.
