Making peace by the Blood of his cross through Him

September 6, 2019 6:00 am

“For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the Blood of his cross through him, whether those on earth or those in heaven.” (COL 1: 19-20) 

Peace has its price, it doesn’t come naturally; peace needs effort, activity, the ability to change perspective from mine to his or hers. There is also a peace which needs something more: “peace by the Blood of his cross through him.” Our Lord gave us a peace which we can’t achieve without Him. We ask for this peace in every Mass and we can share this peace with others, especially with our spouses and our children.

“I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
