How can I build peace?

How can I build peace?

By Fr. Bernard Holzer, aa


Please spread widely the message of peace and compassion of our own Pope Francis. These are words of peace that can change the world if we make them our own!


“I carry daily in my heart, with sorrow, the suffering of the populations in Palestine and in Israel, due to the ongoing hostilities. The thousands of dead, wounded, displaced, and the immense destruction cause suffering, and this has tremendous consequences on the small and the defenseless, who see their future compromised. I ask myself: do we really think we can build a better world in this way? Do we really think we can achieve peace? Enough, please! Let us all say it: enough, please! Stop! I encourage the continuation of negotiations for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza and in the entire region, so that the hostages may be freed immediately and return to their anxiously awaiting loved ones, and the civilian population can have safe access to urgently needed humanitarian aid. And please let us not forget tormented Ukraine, where so many die every day. There is so much pain there.”


Let us fervently pray for a ceasefire in Gaza before Ramadan and for negotiations for peace in Ukraine.
