This is distressing, with the quest for peace among political parties seeming out of reach. What is the remedy for this division? Pope Pius XI believed it was the peace of Jesus Christ. As he explained in his encyclical, Ubi Arcano. "First, and most important of all, for mankind is the need of spiritual peace. We do not need a peace that will consist merely in acts of external or formal courtesy, but a peace which will penetrate the souls of men and which will unite, heal, and reopen their hearts to that mutual affection which is born of brotherly love."
