Peace through the Holy Spirit

In this Sunday's Gospel we listen to the words of Jesus speaking with the disciples about the coming of the Holy Spirit.  The peace which Jesus gives, is a special inner peace which comes from receiving the Holy Spirit into our lives.  Through the sacrifice he made on the cross, Jesus won this peace for us.  True peace comes only from God.  This peace is not dependent on peaceful conditions: we can experience it even in the midst of trouble or uncertainty. Peace, like love, is a gift to share.

Virtues Focus - Curious and Active

Children in St. Joseph's School are growing to be curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can do for the better.

Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit so that we can know your perfect peace.  Please help us to share that peace with others.  Amen.
