TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Peace I bequeath to you,

my own peace I give you,

a peace the world cannot give,

this is my gift to you.

Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.

.

– John 14:27 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

“A peace the world cannot give”

The peace of the world can be superficial and misleading

.

The peace Christ gives us

is that deep inner comforting peace,

which only comes if we entrust ourselves totally to Him,

knowing that He is always by our side;

that He loves and cares for us beyond our comprehension;

that He will lead us safely through thick and thin.

.

The peace Christ gives us is

"serenity of mind,

tranquillity of soul,

simplicity of heart,

a bond of love,

a union of charity.” (St. Augustine)

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

O God of Love, O King of Peace,

empty me from myself,

and fill me with Your peace.
