?"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you."?
At the Last Supper, even as Jesus knew He would be killed the next day, He still gave the apostles His gift of peace - for His peace is not the absence of conflict but the security of knowing that He came from the Father, that He had done His Father's mission (start the Kingdom), and that He was returning to the Father
?We too receive Jesus' peace if we fix in our heart and mind that we are His brothers & sisters with the same origin, the same mission and the same destination.?This conviction powered St. Paul to face beatings and stoning as he built churches, expanding the Kingdom of God (1st Reading).
True peace is walking, breathing and missioning with Jesus.
