SEVENTH MONDAY OF EASTER TIME

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD SEVENTH MONDAY OF EASTER TIME May 25, 2020 WORD of the DAY Jesus answered them, “Do you believe now? Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” (John 16, 31-33) How shall I live this Word? Peace is one of the last gifts that Jesus leaves us before ascending to Heaven. His peace is not the absence of tribulation and suffering but can only come from trust in Jesus. There is no other more important message at this time when we are living difficulty, insecurity, and fear. And what is yet to come, the future, will also be difficult because we do not know how it will be… We cannot go back and yet, we do not know where to go! Lack of security and instability are strong during this period, very strong…Lord, we need the peace...
