Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Jn 14

Lord, you offer us the blessing of peace, shalom. Peace is fullness of life. You want us to be fully alive, spiritually, physically, socially, and so forth. This peace is much more than the mere absence of violence. It is being reconciled with you, with one another, with ourselves, and even with all creation. When we offer one another the sign of peace at mass, we share this blessing and commit ourselves to building this kind of peace in the world around us. May we be peacemakers in our world. Amen.
