Lent Reflection Day 15

 

SCRIPTURE: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." ~Matthew 5:9


REFLECTION

Lent is a good time to pray the prayer of Saint Francis: “Lord make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love, where there is injury, pardon. Peace spread when we turn this prayer into deliberate action. Then we make the transition from peace-lovers to peacemakers.


DAILY PRACTICE

Think of someone with whom you are not on good terms. Ask God, “Lord, how can I be a peacemaker in this relationship?” seek God’s guidance in the role of peacemaker.
