Christian hope and Christian humility are inseparable. The quality of nonviolence is decided largely by the purity of Christian hope behind it. The Christian knows that there are radically sound possibilities in everyone, and believes that love and grace always have the power tp bring out those possibilities at the most unexpected moments. Therefore, if one has hopes that God will grant peace to the world, it is because one also trusts that humanity, God's creature, is not basically evil, that there is a potentiality for peace and order which can be realized provided the right conditions are there. Christians will do their part in creating these conditions by preferring love and trust to hate and suspiciousness. Obviously, once again, this "hope in humankind" must not be naive. But experience itself has shown, in the last few years, how much an attitude of simplicity and openness can do to break down barriers of suspicion that have divided people for centuries.

Thomas Merton-from the essay "Blessed are the Meek-The Christian Roots of Nonviolence.
