WHY DO WE WAR?
I don't often quote bible verses, but in Mass today this one particularly struck me. Those who have known war will get this.
James, 4, verses 1-4:
Where do the wars and where do the conflicts among you come from? Is it not from your passions that make war within your members? You who covet do not possess. You kill and envy but you cannot obtain; you fight and wage war. You do not possess because you do not ask. You ask but do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend on your passions.
