Romero on Peace

In the words of Archbishop Oscar Romero:

Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
Peace is not the silent result of violent oppression.
Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all.
Peace is dynamism.
Peace is generosity.  It is right and it is duty.

Today, on this 11th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and everyday, I choose to believe that peace is possible.

Please join me in praying for peace this day.

You might want to pray with the weekly peace prayer from the website of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace and join our Sisters and Associates in prayer from wherever you may be.
