This is a hall of words. A few days ago we had, in this rostrum, the most powerful men in the world. Now we have the privilege to have the most powerful woman in the world. She does need deeds. I think that the best thing I can do is to pay tribute to her and to tell that she is much more than I, much more than all of us.
She is the United Nations. She is peace in this world. We have gathered together to thank God for the 40 years of the beautiful work that the United Nations have put in for the good of the people, and as we begin the year of peace, let us say the prayer, you have all got one, we say the prayer together for peace.
For works of love are works of peace. We say it together so that we may obtain peace and God can give us peace, by uniting us together. Make us worthy Lord to serve our fellow men throughout the world, who live and die in poverty and hunger.
Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread and by our understanding love give peace and joy. Lord, make me a channel of thy peace. That where there is hatred I may bring love, That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness, That where there is discord, I may bring harmony, That where there is error I may bring truth, That where there is doubt I may bring faith, That where there is despair I may bring hope, That where there are shadows I may bring light, That where there is sadness I may bring joy.
Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort that to be comforted, To understand than to be understood, To love than to be loved.
For it is by forgetting self that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven, it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. We have asked our Lord to make us channels of peace, of joy, of love, of unity, and this is why Jesus came: God loved the world so much that he gave Jesus his son to come among us, to give us that good news, that God loves us.
And that he wants us to love one another as he loves each one of us. That he has created us for that one reason: We are not just a number in the world. We are children of God. Because the same loving hand of God has created you, created me, created man of the street, created that leper, that hungry man, that rich man, for that same purpose: And this is what you and I have come together today to find the means of peace.
How does peace come? Through works of love. Where does it begin? How does it begin? For family that prays together stays together. And if you stay together, you will love one another as God loves each one of you.
For Prayer gives a clean heart and a clean heart can see God. And if you see God in each other, if we have the joy of seeing God in each other, we will love one another. For we are all the same children of the same loving hand of God, created for greater things: Only we must experience that joy of loving.
I never forget, some time back, two young people came to our house and they gave me lots of money. Before marriage, we decided we will not buy wedding clothes.
We will not have wedding feast. We will give you that money. Why did you do like that? How do we experience that? By giving until it hurts.
When I was going to Ethiopia, little children came to me.The General Assembly is the main deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the United Nations.
