About Today Readings

St Pius V

Acts 14:19-28. Your friends tell the glory of your kingship, Lord – Psalm 144(145):10-13, 21. John 14:27-31.

A peace the world cannot give is my gift to you

‘Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.’ (John 14:27)

In today’s Gospel, Jesus warns his disciples not to be afraid. Even when he leaves them to go to the Father, they should remain in his peace. Jesus reminds us that peace will not come for the world, or from our jobs, friends, or security. Peace only comes from him. This peace that arises from Jesus, following his word and doing his will.

Lord Jesus, may we trust in your will and not let anxiety trouble our hearts and minds. May we do exactly what the Father tells us to do as you did.
