05-16-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

May 16, 2017
Jesus said to his disciples: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give it to you.”  Jn_14:27-31a

So, what do you think that means, beloved, “as the world gives“?  The “world” gives in payment for . . . The world gives in order to get.   The world gives in order to take.  The peace of Jesus is something He has left with us.  We did nothing to deserve it.  It is a grace – an undeserved favor from God.  Jesus gives as pure gift.  All we need do is open it.

You see, there is a peace within each and every one of us, beloved!  It’s the peace of Jesus.  Find it and you will see that there is nothing in the “world” that can compare!
