Brian R Corbin's Reflections on Religion and Life

Living Your Faith as Citizens and Leaders in Politics, Culture, Society and Business

Making Peace in our lives……

Twenty-six years ago our Bishops informed us that “Peacemaking is not an optional commitment. It is a requirement of our faith. We are called to be peacemakers, not by some movement of the moment, but by our Lord Jesus.” (The Challenge of Peace, par. 333.)

The message of Jesus and the teachings of our church are calling us to become a peace-building church. This is not an easy task in a world scarred by violence and terrorism.

As we journey through Lent how are we working to build peace between diverse groups, and among nations? How are we becoming disciples of the nonviolent love of Jesus?

How can this Lent be a time a deeper spiritual peace for me so that I can be a more peaceable person?
