Peace be with you
Christ Jesus, we praise you for you restored our “startled and terrified” life with your "peace." Help us also with your peace, Lord, to understand the resurrection and not be troubled. Make us believe in your resurrection and renew our faith that as we look upon you, we may know, believe and love you with our heart, our soul and our mind. May your peace remain ours and be the source of hope that we can hold on to whenever we are troubled. This we ask of you, Lord, who live and reign with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.
