Dearest friends, I know we are coming together for this Day of World Peace…let our dream become a reality. It is up to each of us to give from our heart and share our caring.

Greetings of peace in this holy season! Although the human community seems far from the peace we all seek, I give thanks every day for the amazing examples of hope present around the world – ordinary people making peace, working for social justice and living in harmony with the natural world! In the New Year may our common commitment to peace bear abundant fruit.

In the middle of the ongoing conflicts in Syria, this Lebanese nun left the tranquility of her monastery to participate in building the Mussalaha reconciliation movement, focused on finding non-violent solutions. She continues to fight to re-establish peaceful conditions within the country by proposing innovative and hope-inspiring initiatives.

Syria has been bleeding for four long years.  The people are facing displacement, separation from family members, and massacres, for which foreign powers heavily carry the responsibility. Enough bleeding! Enough violence! Enough of this war! May all efforts for peace be successful in 2015! May Mussalaha, the indispensable reconciliation, take root in the land of Syria!
