I will do the following:
Is the Answer
Iraq remains embroiled
in violence and turmoil. Terrorism continues to surface around the world,
with new hot spots emerging in the daily news.
Violence is in the air, but so is peace.
In his January 2007 World Day of Peace message, Pope Benedict XVI noted that peace is both gift and task.
He called special attention to “the widespread climate of uncertainty” caused by nuclear weapons in the hands of a growing number of nations. “The way to ensure a future of peace for everyone is found not only in international accords for the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons,” he said, “but also in the determined commitment to seek their reduction and definitive dismantling. The fate of the whole human family is at stake!”
The Holy Father’s message closed with an urgent appeal directed to the People of God for “tireless peace-making and strenuous defense of the dignity of the human person.”
People of good will
around the globe are answering the call to be peacemakers by turning to
prayerful, peaceful, positive responses.
