What are Vitamins for the Heart? Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly.

A compilation: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. – Matthew 5:9 NIV. I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance.
