Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Gift of Peace: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples, “I will give you a Peace that the world cannot give.”  Ponder on: Everyone longs to have deep peace in one’s hearts.  The ‘Peace’ that Jesus promises to give us, is the most fulfilling and enduring gift that we can ever receive.  So, let us love Jesus more wholeheartedly.

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 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 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 much 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.’
