2nd Sunday of Easter – Divine Mercy Sunday – April 11
The Lord is RISEN; Alleluia, Alleluia!!
“Peace Be With You.” Jesus says this three times in this Sunday’s Gospel reading. Think about it. At a time when his disciples are suffering from great fear, pain, and uncertainty, Jesus starts his post-resurrection visits with “Peace be with you.”
These words can be the balm we all need in times of stress. It’s like intentional breathing: In … two … three … four; Out … two … three … four. The centering that these words and this act achieves in us can be almost miraculous. When we find ourselves with dis-ease — be it from fear, confusion, anger, resentment, etc. — Jesus calls us to peace — the kind of Peace that comes only from Him.
He is Risen indeed; Alleluia, Alleluia!!
Easter Peace to you,
