October 24th is United Nations Day, which commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Charter in 1945. For 71 years, the United Nations has been working to maintain international peace and security, promote sustainable development, protect human rights, uphold international law, and deliver humanitarian aid. Spiritual leaders can also be found on the front lines of peace, and they are naturally tied to the U.N. by their common goals. Brother David Steindl-Rast is a Benedictine monk and author known for his contributions to the interfaith dialogue and for being a proponent of the transformative power of gratefulness. From his archives comes this powerful, poetic meditation delivered at a previous U.N. anniversary gathering. It is an homage to all activists before us, an observance of our commonality, and a call to action to stand up for peace — something the world still needs today.
