“Peace be with you.” Penny explores the peace that healed the disciples who were in lockdown, paralyzed by doubt and fear. Have you ever experienced that type of fear and the peace that heals? The disciples were hiding in fear. Jesus had died on the cross. Doubt and fear filled their hearts - so they hid. Jesus appeared to them and said: “Peace be with you.” He was not angry. He was not filled with hatred that he had been betrayed by some, dismissed by others, and that all were paralyzed in fear not living in the love he had encouraged. Rather, he shared his peace. Find peace. Experience God’s peace that heals. It’s free and all around us – be open to God’s free gift of peace and love.
