Wars and rumors of wars proliferate around the world. Nations, tribes, gangs, idealogues kill each other for the love of money, for the love of power, for the love of revenge, for the love of violence, for the love of God (God help us). The way to make any drop of difference at all seems not only unclear but impossible. But our God says to us, "blessed are the peacemakers." (Mt 5:9) "Lord, increase our faith!"Read full transcript...
