We enter into a new year, a year of challenges, a year of choices, a year of elections.
Did we make some resolutions? Pope Francis is inviting us to build peace in us and around us.
“Peace is a gift from on high, but peace is also our commitment: it asks us to take the first step, it demands concrete actions. It is built by being attentive to the least, by promoting justice, with the courage to forgive thus extinguishing the fire of hatred. And it needs a positive outlook as well, one that always sees, in the Church as well as in society, not the evil that divides us, but the good that unites us! Getting depressed or complaining is useless. We need to roll up our sleeves to build peace. At the beginning of this year, may the Mother of God, the Queen of Peace, obtain harmony in our hearts and in the entire world.” – Angelus, January 1, 2022.
Let us think: peace! Because we need peace. Let's build peace!
Good wishes to you all! Happy New Year! Take care of you, and of others!
