“Blessed are the peacemakers”

world-peace-dayIn his 2013 Message for the World Day of Peace , Pope Benedict XVI reminds us at that we all have a role to play in building peace in our communities and world. He reminds us that our commitment to pursue peace flows from the inner peace we experience through our relationship with Christ and our belief in the life and dignity of every person, created in God’s image and endowed with fundamental rights and responsibilities. This belief compels us to take action, especially by promoting freedom of conscience and religion as well as models of economic developments based on love, solidarity and self-giving for the common good.
