“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God,” (Mt 5:9).
I must say this verse aloud a hundred times a week.
To the children squabbling in the kitchen over who gets the last white peach.
To the big one who taunts the little one and the little one who whines on his cue.
To the girl with tears streaming down her face when the infamous girl triangle of friends goes awry and she owes an apology.
