Reflection 1st September 2013

Blessed are the peacemakers
Blessed are you peacemakers who say no to war as a means to peace.
Blessed are you peacemakers who are committed to disarm weapons of mass destruction.
Blessed are you peacemakers who wage peace at heroic personal cost.
Blessed are you peacemakers who challenge and confront judges, courts and prisons.
Blessed are you peacemakers who help those who are hurting.
Blessed are you peacemakers who befriend perfect strangers.
Blessed are you peacemakers who open doors for acting justly, loving tenderly and walking humbly with God and all people of good will.
Blessed are you peacemakers who offer hope and healing.
Blessed are you peacemakers who care and comfort.
Blessed are you peacemakers who help find answers.
Blessed are you peacemakers who welcome, encourage and inspire.
Blessed are you peacemakers who delight in creation, art and creativity.
Blessed are you peacemakers who provide stability not insanity.
Blessed are you peacemakers who help restore faith and love.
Blessed are you peacemakers who see the good in others.
Blessed are you peacemakers who never give up.
Blessed are you peacemakers who give and give and give.
(Fr Paul Milanowski)
