Day #161: Gaudium Et Spes 82

Today in the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, we  finish section 1 on the “The Avoidance of War.”

Article 82 acknowledges the strides that have already been made by those who have sought to bring an end to war.  The efforts of such leaders needs to be supported.  The Council seems to acknowledge that this is easier said than done, but the Church remains the constant witness to the world to strive for just such peace.

Here is the footnote:

4. Cf. 2 Cor. 2:6.
