WORDS FOR LIFE
- Peace is one of the topics covered in today’s readings.
2. In the first reading, the Prophet Isaiah says: “I will send her peace, overflowing like a river; and the nation’s wealth, rushing like a torrent towards her.”
3. In the Gospel, Jesus sends seventy-two disciples to proclaim the Gospel and announce the coming of the Kingdom of God. “Whatever house you enter, first bless them, saying, ‘Peace to this house!’ If a friend of peace lives there, the peace shall rest upon that person. But if not, the blessing will return to you.”
4. A channel of your peace Lord, make me a channel of your peace. Where there’s an ear to hear, let me sow your love; where there’s hurt, let me be forgiving; where there’s doubt, let me show faith; where there’s acrimony, let me be harmonious through your love.
