(St. Vincent de Paul, Priest)
Greater will be the future glory of this house than the former, says the LORD of hosts; And in this place I will give you peace, says the LORD of hosts! Hg_2:1-9
As the LORD is predicting the greatness of the ‘resurrected,’ reconstructed Temple after its original destruction and the Israelites 70-years of Babylonian exile, so Jesus is predicting the greatness of His resurrected body after His rejection and assassination by the religious leaders.
Jesus said, “The Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed and on the third day be raised.” Lk_9:18-22
And in that resurrection God will give us peace. The peace of His merciful love. The peace and hope of our union with Jesus forever. So it was said, and so it shall be done!
