Religion of peace

Joel 3 9-10

From the Matins reading in the (real) Breviary.

Calling the children of Israel to a holy war:

Proclaim ye this among the nations: prepare war, rouse up the strong: let them come, let all the men of war come up.

Cut your ploughshares into swords, and your spades into spears. Let the weak say: I am strong.
