Peacemaking

September 18, 2018

Peacemaking begins with seeing, seeing what is really going on around us, seeing ourselves in relation to the world we are a part of, seeing our lives in the light of the kingdom of God, seeing those who suffer, and seeing the image of God not only in friends but in enemies. What we see and what we fail to see define who we are and how we live our lives. — Jim Forest remembering Thomas Merton’s guidance during a retreat with Daniel Berrigan and other leaders of Catholic Peace Fellowship in his book At Play in the Lions’ Den: A Biography and Memoir of Daniel Berrigan
