Blessed are the peacemakers. The peacemakers mentioned here are those who establish peace between man and God. But true peacemakers try to remove the injustice, pain, and sin that is in the world. They help people to reconcile with God. This is true peace.
In order to be a peacemaker, we must first reconcile ourselves to God. We can find peace only through faith in Jesus Christ. To find true peace, we must be like those described in the beatitudes: poor in spirit, meek, hungering for justice, merciful, and pure in heart. All these attributes are dependent on each other. We cannot have one of these qualities without the others.
How do we make peace? By loving our fellow human beings as much as we love ourselves. Love is the main weapon of peace.
