Margaret Anna Fridays

Every Friday, I’m going to share a quote from the founder of my groovy sisters, Margaret Anna Cusack, known in religion as Mother Francis Clare. This week’s installment …

Christianity being a religion of peace, its disciples were necessarily preachers of peace; hence the first effort in any country was to reconcile quarrels, to compose differences, and to avert wars. The peaceful arts came to be cultivated when they came to be honoured; and war, except for a just cause, to be looked upon as an evil and not as a glory.
"A History of the City & County of Cork" (1875)
