Peace, sadly, seems almost remote in our modern times. Whilst some may have done abhorrent things in the name of our Lord, it serves us well to be reminded that the Christian faith, as quoted above, is one of peace and goodwill. The body is one in which the Lord our Father sits at the head, but is also comprised of many members, including his only begotten son, the Holy Spirit, the Angels, Apostles and Saints. For the body to function, it requires harmony between all parts, as a peace emanating from God and culminating within us.
God almighty, in Your peace, I worship You and adore You. In Your goodness, I pray for Your forgiveness. Grant peace upon fellow men, and show mercy towards Your followers. For we are all messengers of Your serenity amidst the darkness in the world, or a flame of good will still, amidst the errors of our ways. May Your body of peace reign once again Lord, as we strive to do Your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
