Thursday in the Octave of Easter ‘b’


While they were still speaking about this, he stood in their midst and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’” Jesus doesn’t offer them a longer life here on earth, He doesn’t give them beautiful and healthy bodies, Jesus doesn’t give them power, fame, or money. No. Jesus simply offers the disciples peace, His peace. And that peace is different than the peace we often pray for. The peace that Jesus wants to give you is that internal peace in your heart -- that peace that will allow us to have the faith that nothing of this world can harm us. The peace of Christ is the confidence that no matter what happens to us in this present life, something more is awaiting us -- and that is life eternal. Life without any pain, sadness, difficulties, life without death. Ask Jesus for that peace, ask Him for His peace, the peace He gave His disciples.
