The Message of Love 

Summary: A Christmas-time reflection on the state of the world torn by the Korean war and poverty in the midst of plenty in the United States. Points to the Gospel message of peace, love of enemies, and love of one another–“It is the only word for Christmas when love came down to the mire, to teach us that love.” Keywords: pacifism, conscientious objection (The Catholic Worker, December 1950, 1, 2. DDLW #617).
