Many will no doubt have received cards on which the sentiment "Peace on Earth" such as these are expressed. It is almost universally the case that these words have been taken and used in this context - a desire for peace and harmony in the earth.
This we are told is what the season of Christmas promotes.
But what do those words 'Peace on Earth' really mean? Where is the "Peace on Earth" that was promised by the Angels so long ago? Are these just nice words we express to one another this time of year, or is there something more?
