Roman Bronze Figure of the Goddess Concordia, Second half of the 2nd century C.E.
Concordia is the personification of harmony between individuals and groups. In antiquity, she symbolized the amity between husband and wife, peaceful family relationships – especially in the Imperial family, and the unity and spirit of goodwill of the Roman people.
Today, July 22, the ancient Romans honored the goddess Concordia. Let us today pray for harmony in our families, and throughout the world.
