Today we celebrate the 8th day of the Christmas Season, wherein in Scripture we are told that Jesus was brought to be circumcised according to the prescribed law.
Today on this day we celebrate Mary, the Mother of God, who witnessed the many signs and heard many words from prophets and sages, shepherds and Magi, about the power of the Word made Flesh.
This is also celebrated as World Day of Peace. Pope Benedict XVI called upon us to reflect upon the theme: if you want peace cultivate creation.
As we begin the New Year, let us make peace the center of our work and lives: let us be peacemakers and peacebuilders in our personal, work and social lives.
How can we be peacemakers? Peacebuilders?
Would love to hear your thoughts….
