Weekly Reflection by Deacon Michael Holley

In our Gospel passage today Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do, I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”These are Powerful words from our Lord indeed. But what kind of peace is Jesus referring to? The peace that Jesus offers is greater than the superficial peace offered by our secular world which can be misleading, self-focusing, and accepting of injustices. The peace of Christ is true reconciliation with God and with each other. Reconciliation though the sacrament of confession restores our relationship with our creator and puts us in a condition such that we can cooperate with God in His plan for salvation.
