 BLESSED ARE THE PEACE MAKERS (Mt 5: 9)

Grace forgives sin and peace stills the conscience. – Martin Luther.

Dear Fathers and Brothers, greetings from the provincialate.

We are in the New Year 2017! Every New Year gives us hope for something better than what we are now. New Year is not a product of human efforts but a gift from God to the universe. As Pope Francis rightly speaks of World day of Peace at the beginning of the New Year the most important gift we require is peace and harmony in one’s life and in the world at large. In the message for the first World Day of Peace on 1 January 1968 blessed Pope Paul VI addressed all peoples not simply Catholics, with utter clarity: “Peace is the only true direction of human progress.” At the birth of Jesus the Angel proclaimed: “Peace to the people of good will” (Luke 2:14). It is a divine promise that all those who are of good will, will be granted Shalom (peace and prosperity). Pope Francis Mentions that “ all of us want peace; many people build it day by day through small gestures and acts; many of them are suffering, yet patiently persevere in their efforts to be peacemakers.”
