Not to conquer, but to redeem

O God, you gave us the grace to carry the sword of your kingdom of peace; and you made us messengers of peace in a world of strife, and messengers of strife in a world of false peace: make strong our hand, make clear our voice, give us humility with firmness and insight with passion, that we may fight, not to conquer, but to redeem.
Gregory Vlastos
