St Joseph Vaz
St Joseph Vaz is the first Sri Lankan saint to be formally recognized by the Church. In the homily at the Mass for his canonization, Pope Francis said that St Joseph Vaz “shows us the importance of transcending religious divisions in the service of peace”.
Do you know people whose holiness, like that of St Joseph Vaz, is shown in respect for the sacredness of life, respect for the dignity and freedom of others, and loving commitment to the welfare of all?
What are some of the ways in which these qualities serve peace?
