May Jesus bless you with His peace.01-17-2016Fr. Matthew Krempel
Jesus told His apostles that when they should enter a town or house, that they should bless the town or house with “Peace to this house,” (Lk. 10:5). St. Francis of Assisi would change this greeting to: “May the Lord bless you with peace.”
We know too that when Jesus appeared to the apostles on the first night of the first day of the week, on the day of His resurrection from the dead, that according to St. John, He greeted them with “Peace be with you.” Again He said: “Peace be with you.” (Jn. 20:19a.21a)
Also, during His last supper, according to St. John, Jesus assured His apostles “Peace I leave you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let your hearts not be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (Jn. 14:27)
St. Irenaeus teaches his disciples that to be at peace with the world is to be at war with God. To be at peace with Christ Jesus, is to be at war with the world. Probably another of version of “you cannot serve both God and mammon," Mt. 6:24.READ MORE
