“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 14:27




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)






“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)






O God of Love, O King of Peace,

empty me from myself,

and fill me with Your peace.
