Justice. Peace.

Justice is not a goal to be acquired, but it is the gift of God, free and inexplicable, which exists in our life so that our means are not intended to "bring in" justice, but to "manifest" it. Likewise, we have not to force ourselves, with great effort and intelligence, to bring peace upon the earth--we have ourselves to be peaceful, for where there are peacemakers, peace reigns.
