Wish it peace

“As you enter a house, wish it peace. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; if not, let your peace return to you.” (MT 10: 12-13)

I like the idea where “wishing peace” is not just a salutation but an effective word. It goes from one person to another and if the recipient is not worthy will go back to the speaker: “If not worthy, let your peace return to you.” It shows us the power of God’s word and peace. Whenever we listen to the priest say, during the Holy Mass:  “peace be with you,” we should remember this.

“The Kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe in the Gospel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
