MESSENGERS OF PEACE

The message of peace is at the core of the readings.  “I will send peace flowing like a river” (Is 66:12).

As Christ sent out his disciples on mission, he instructed them “whatever house you enter, let your first words be, peace to this house” (Lk 10:5).

What a good place for us to start as messengers of peace, where we live and where we visit.  To bring this gift we must first have it within our hearts.  There can be many blocks in our busy lives preventing us experiencing that peace such as anger, greed, pride, etc.  When we overcome these, peace flows from us to others.

Jesus uses us, inadequate as we might be, to be peacemakers in a world crying out for peace.

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL Luke 10:1-12, 17-20

Jesus sent out his disciples on a mission to let people know ‘the kingdom of God has come near to you’.  Recall when you have reached out to another in word or in deed to help them realise that they were cherished, perhaps by a word of sympathy or encouragement, or by giving a hand with a difficult task.  What was it like to you to experience yourself as a person bringing help and encouragement to another?

Recent events (Covid pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and poverty and famine in some countries) have created situations of dire need for some.  These crises have also brought out great generosity as people reached out in caring for the sick and refugees and contributing money when they could.  Perhaps there are individuals or groups that have particularly inspired you.  Remember them and ask God’s blessing on them.

Jesus sent the disciples out two by two.  When have you found it beneficial not to be working alone, but with another by your side?  How did companionship change the experience?  What you were able to achieve together that you could not have done on your own?

When the disciples returned Jesus warned them not to focus on the thrill of what they had been able to achieve.  It was more important that their ‘names are written in heaven’.  Sometimes we also need reminders that who we are is more important than what we do.  Who have been the people who brought this home to you?  Have there been experiences that helped you to appreciate this?
