The road to world peace begins with my openhearted acceptance of those who are different than me. Our wonderful world is vast and diverse, and its people come from a wide variety of cultures and histories. The more I learn about those whose lives differ from mine, the more I can appreciate their perspectives and empathize with their struggles. When I make the decision to understand others, I discover that judgment fades in the light of compassion. Today I sow peace through my acceptance and understanding. Peace in the world grows as I join my brothers and sisters in celebrating the glory of human diversity and affirming oneness in God.
“Lent is peace by fasting and giving up a beloved fixation; Easter is our equality rebirth – equalizing the gentiles and Jews.”
