“Blessed Are the Peacemakers” …But, Like, Are They Really?

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” Mt 5:9

We’ve heard the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5 many times for sure. But do we truly understand what it means to be a peacemaker? What’s involved in making peace?

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary offers a few very practical tips for how to more fully live out this Beatitude in our daily lives.
