Reflections on the words of Jesus (in red)

Archive for the month “December, 2012”


“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
Matthew 5:9

Christ does not say, “Blessed are those who make war, who break the peace, who cause division, who build walls, who hide in bunkers, who hoard treasure and medicine, who create dividing lines, who fight with others, who replace hope with cynicism, who cut off children from parents, who rule over others, who subdue, who oppress…”

How do we make peace?How do we unmake peace?

When you hear your name called, will it be followed by “child of God”? Why?
