PRAXIS OF PEACE: PEACEMAKING IN OUR WORLD (#1)

Our task for peace in the world and in our respective country and region is peacemaking! The theory of peace urges us to the practice – or praxis – of peace, that is, to peacemaking in our world.
In his series titled ‘Praxis of Peace: Peacemaking in our World’, Fr Fausto Gomez OP shares a simple recipe to achieve the task.
In his first column, he presents the first two requirements for peacemaking in our world today: focusing on Self and God, and Family and Community.
