Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s Peace: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, “I bequeath to you a Peace that the world cannot give.” If we reflect on the way we live and relate to our family and others, we will see that unless we are at “peace with God” in our conscience and strive to love Him, we will have little peace in our hearts and our lives.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is my gift to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me say: I am going away and shall return. If you loved me you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
‘I have told you this now, before it happens, so that when it does happen you may believe. I shall not talk to you much longer, because the prince of this world is on his way. He has no power over me, but the world must recognise that I love the Father and that I act just as the Father commanded.’
