As these difficult and challenging times continue, we still walk in His Light together, nourished by His mighty Word and His Presence that whispers to our souls "remain in my love"....."do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid"....."Trust me"



In today’s Gospel Jesus gives His disciples two gifts. The first gift is love and the second is His peace. Peace means different things to different people. There are many people who wouldn’t describe their lives as peaceful right now. Whether it’s a worry about the latest news going on in our world, or unresolved conflicts in relationships, bereavement - painful illness etc. For someone suffering, one or two hours without pain could be peace.   But the peace that Jesus gives is a peace that gives long-term happiness.  A peace that frees hearts full of fear, anxiety and worry. A peace that brings serenity of mind....... simplicity of heart....... and tranquility of the soul. A peace that builds bridges of trust and allows us to walk together to the Father. This final gift that Jesus leaves for his disciples is a peace that can be found even in the midst of turmoil. If we keep His word, He will make His home in us and whenever we hit stormy waters we will be blessed with His peace. As we offer each other the gaze of peace today - let us really embrace that gift and share it with others! Alleluia!
