Scripture Saturday--Peace

I wanted to talk today about peace.  We are called, as Christians, to live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18)  Hatred and intolerance in the name of God is blasphemous and wrong.  

In many of her approved apparitions, Our Lady calls us to pray the rosary for peace.  This is more important today than ever.

The rosary puts us into a place of being one with Our Lord's life and he was Peace.  

Jesus ate with the lepers, the poor and the sinners.  His peace had nothing to do with outward appearances, even to the point of not condemning lepers, prostitutes and adulterers.  And He was GOD.  How much less should we judge, then? Being united to the life of Christ, puts us in a place of peace.

Also, praying the rosary is a good way to pray when we don't know what to say.  What better way to ask God for peace, than to meditate on the life of His Son? By meditating on His life, we can become peace too.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
