“Blessed are the Peacemakers” ~ Jesus Christ, Gospel of Matthew

Blessed too, Jesus says, are the meek, the merciful, the pure in heart and those who hunger and thrust for righteousness.  This world of blessings sounds beautiful, but profoundly unlike the world in which we live.  As much as we might be tempted, we cannot so easily shake off the compelling words of the our Savior and his vision for the world.  For in truth, we long for a world in which they would be fulfilled.  How do we get there?

A reflection on peacemaking, the cross and Siri.
