‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid’. These words are from our Gospel reading for today, from St John.

We pray today for peace in our hearts, but also most importantly in our world, that the peace of the Risen Christ may be poured out like a healing oil upon the nations of the earth. May God be very close to you this day, and bless you.
