As the U.S. Catholic Bishops explain, “Peacemaking is not an optional…requirement of our faith. We are called to be peacemakers, not by some movement of the moment, but by our Lord Jesus. The content and context of our peacemaking is set not by some political agenda or ideological program, but by the teaching of his Church (#333)…Because we have been gifted with God’s peace in the risen Christ, we are called to our own peace, and to the making of peace in our world. As disciples and as children of God, it is our task to seek for ways in which to make forgiveness, justice and mercy, and love of God visible in a world where violence and enmity are too often the norm” (#55) (Challenge of Peace, USCCB, 1983).
