Outer and inner, social and personal peace is the basis on which life can thrive. Even if we have taken peace for granted during recent decades in our latitudes, the endangered, vulnerable and fleeting nature of this substance that we all need becomes increasingly clear. Peace doesn’t just simply exist and arise on its own. »Seek peace and pursue it!« was already called for in Psalm 34. »Seek peace« – This was also the motto of the 2018 German Catholic Day in Münster. People from the public sphere spoke about their experiences of peace here, of seeking and finding, of achieving and losing the peace in the own life, in society, in history and in the present. The result of the event is this stimulating reader. In entirely different approaches, it shows how crucial the search for peace is for each and every individual – and how little it is seen as self-evident and existential.
