April's Virtue of the Month: PEACE


On the night before he died, Jesus left us the gift of PEACE when he said to his disciples, "Peace is my farewell to you, my peace is my gift to you."

A gift is not a gift until a person has accepted it.

Have you accepted the GIFT OF PEACE?

Wherever you are, you should be a peacemaker - at home, at school, on the playground, at basketball, in the cafeteria, in your neighborhood.

Do you contribute to conflict by encouraging others who are disturbing the peace?
  • Do you say things that make people upset?
  • Are you uncooperative at play?
  • Do you think the rules are for everybody except you?
  • Do you take a fair share of responsibility for chores at home?
Take these words as your motto: Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Think of ways that YOU may be an INSTRUMENT of peace.
  • Take turns
  • Say only respectful words to one another
  • Keep the rules
  • Always cooperate
  • Be responsible for your actions
  • Always do your part at home and at school
  • Never encourage those who are causing conflict
  • When there is a problem, try to bring about a peaceful solution
  • If the problem continues, seek appropriate help
