Pure of Heart
God sent Jesus Christ to humanity, so that he could reconcile us to him by sacrificing himself for the sin of the world. Our Sacrament of Reconciliation restores our relationship, thereby bringing us some level of peace. Jesus taught his disciples to imitate him, and reconcile one to the other. As disciples, we must do something to ease suffering, strife and distress.
St Paul described the “Gospel of Peace.” Dan makes the impactful point that peacemakers have to use spiritual muscle, to help restore peace by challenging sin–in themselves and, especially, in others who cause strife. By restoring peace, we help Christ bring the Kingdom of the World
