The news is filled with stories of turmoil. St. Francis understood that peace was our reward—we just need to cultivate and share it.
I am troubled
by the violence
I see every day.
But I know that you bless those
who foster peace in this world—
and it can begin with me.
how to bring peace
into my heart,
and the world around me.
It takes courage to right an injustice, but that’s precisely our calling as Christians. Start with this prayer but build outward: What can you do to bring about peace in the world?
