DG BookGospel: John 14:23-29
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word and my Father will love him; and we will come to him and live with him.
But if anyone does not love me, he will not keep my words; and these words that you hear are not mine, but the Father who sent me.
I told you all this while I am still with you. From now on the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you

all things, and remind you of all that I have told you. Peace be with you! My peace I give to you; not as the world gives peace do I give it to you. Do not
be troubled! Do not be afraid! You heard me say, ‘I am going away, but I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I go to the Father,
for the Father is greater than I. I have told you this now before it takes place, so that when it does happen you may believe.

 

Reflection:

 

It is important to note that Jesus promises “his” peace to
the disciples, because the peace he gives is essentially different from the
kind of peace the world gives. For, the worldly peace almost always is
soaked in violence and bloodshed; it is a nuclear peace forced on
others out of fear and threat. It is a peace brought about by war and
destruction; a peace amidst the tombs. However, the peace that
Christ offers is a liberating one, a non-violent peace; peace that is
offered and received in freedom and love; peace that does not alienate
anyone but includes everyone; peace that leaves the tombs open
raising even the dead. It is a share of such liberating peace that the
apostles, through the Jerusalem Council, offered the gentile converts.
