The Peacemakers

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. The Lord calls them peacemakers to indicate the fullness of the peace that they have within, for they do not simply have peace, but they radiate this peace out to those around them. This peace proceeds from and is proportionate to joy (so much so that the peace can even be confused with joy) and joy proceeds from and is entirely rooted on love.

– Christ, through the will of the Father and the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, offers man the gift of eternal life. It is called life because it is an interior principle, but most importantly, it is Christ’s own interior principle- his own awareness of the world in him was life, and that life was the light of men.
