Dear Friend in the Lord,

Divine Peace: In today’s Gospel, Jesus bequeaths “His Peace” to His disciples, that the world cannot give.  This divine Peace will sustain them in the crises of their faith, when Jesus is persecuted and crucified.  Ponder on, “Am I conscious of Jesus’ Peace in my heart, in times of the pains and crises of my life?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 14:27-31a

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘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. You heard me say: I am going away and shall return. If you loved me you would have been glad to know 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 with you any longer, because the prince of this world is on his way. He has no power over me, but the world must be brought to know that I love the Father and that I am doing exactly what the Father told me.’
