Peace from “Calmness” by H. H. Pope Shenouda III, 1989
The History of Calmness

Since the beginning of time, God alone has been in perfect peace…God began to work in peace and His first work was the Creation. In perfect peace God created everything. “Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good;” (Gen. 1:3-4)…”
