"MAY A POWERFUL CRY FOR PEACE
GO UP FROM EVERY LAND!"
“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?”

I remember an ordinary, unwed woman living in a run of the mill, inconsequential village who, with her “yes,” gave birth to the Son of God.
I remember a mother whose prayers and petitions for her son’s conversion, brought about a priest, an illustrious bishop, who is also a renowned Doctor of the Church.
I remember a simple, honest man from Okarche, Oklahoma, who after failing his second year of seminary Theology, became a missionary for the faith—and eventually, a martyr—ministering the people of Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala.
I remember the miracles in my own life, the abundant moments of grace that come about when I humbly and faithfully get on my knees in prayer and examine, “am I doing my part?”
Yes, let there be peace on earth—and let it begin with me.
pray for us sinners,
now and in the hour of our death.
