Peace

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 8:14 am

I woke up very early this morning and purchased two coffees and proceeded to early Mass at 7 am.  The little statue that sits outside of the side door of “Our Lady of the Assumption” is a symbol of the peace that the man represented.  “I leave you peace, my peace I give you.  May the peace of the Lord be with you”, and the congregation responds, “and also with you”, then the priest says, “then offer your brother some sign of God’s peace.”  You can say what you like about the Catholic religion, but these words that are offered up every Mass in every corner of the world mean something.  Of all of the wars that have been fought on this planet through out history and all of the rhetoric that went along with those wars, no other words have been remembered and revered than those spoken by Jesus over 2000 years ago–”I leave you peace, my peace I give you…”  Is not that what we all want–rich, poor, black, white, gay, straight.  Is that not what we all really want deep down for our brother?  Even those we hate?  Even those who are our “enemy”?  Have a wonderful Sunday.  Peace M
