Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.
— John 20:21

Do you feel great joy at Mass? When Jesus gives his gift of peace, whether to the first disciples or to those who, even today, gather in his name, our fears and anxieties should be transformed to joy. The peace that Jesus gives creates wholeness and harmony, and is a source of transformation of individuals and the entire community. With the gift of the Holy Spirit, we as a community are called to go out and offer another gift that Jesus has given to us: forgiveness in his name. Pray this week to share the gift of love, peace and forgiveness with all you encounter.
