Healing the wounds of the world

Short Reflection by George Calleja

How tragic it is to hear news about the different wars and terrorism taking place all over the world. Many innocent people die daily in these tragic situations. These are wounds that today’s society is burdened with, wounds that cripple humanity, impairing it from living in peace and harmony.

These wounds brought through the above tragic episodes are the wounds that have already been suffered by the body of Christ when he was condemned on the Cross. These same wounds carried by Jesus make it possible for us to experience healing by loving, trusting and having faith in Him. It is only through Jesus that these wounds are healed.

Each person has to do his part to receive the healing of these wounds. We are to love one another without any distinction of race, religion or colour. We are to work for peace in the world through dialogue. This dialogue is not only the responsibility of the world leaders… but each person is to foster the dialogue for peace. This can be achieved at our work place, with our families, with friends, and wherever we go.

Healing the wounds of the world is possible. We must constantly pray for peace, to be united through prayer and to seek the Lord Jesus in our lives.

It is only through Jesus that the wounds of the world are healed.

In peace and unity,

George Calleja
