We gather in wisdom from the day's readings.

Thursday, 3/31/16

Both readings today present us with things for us to ponder. Three sentences from the first reading that catches our attention, are these. 

“The author of life you put to death.”

Repent .  . that the Lord may grant you times of refreshment . . . until the times of universal restoration.”

“God has raised up his servant and sent him to bless you by turning each of you from your evil ways.”

The risen Christ always greeted his followers by saying, “Peace be with you.”

The saint who had the most valuable thing about peace was John of the Cross. He wrote that the great thief of peace of soul is unfulfilled desires, while the great guardian of peace of soul is the disciplined habit of not letting desires take root in us
