Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

“When the Apostle Paul said, “as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all” (Rom. 12:18), he knew quiet well that the realization of peace depends on the consent of two parties. The prophet Jeremiah  cries, “They say ‘Peace, peace,’ and yet there is no peace” (Jer. 8:11). It is not hard to profess in words your love of peace while your actions overthrow peace. To point out the advantages of peace is one thing, and to strive for it is another. People’s speech may be all for unity, but their actions may in fact enforce bondage. I wish for peace as much as anyone else; and not only do I wish for it, I ask for it. But the peace that I want is the peace of Christ; a true peace, a peace without rancor, a peace that does not involve war, a peace that will not [only] reduce opponents but will unite friends. How can I call domination peace? Where there is hatred, let people talk of feuds; and where there is mutual esteem, only let peace be spoken of…I know nothing of a peace that is without love and I do not know of a communion that is without peace. In the Gospel, I read, ‘If you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.’ If then we may not offer gifts that are our own unless we are at peace with our brothers; how much less can we receive the body of Christ if we cherish enmity in our hearts? How can I conscientiously approach Christ’s Eucharist and answer the Amen if I doubt the love of Him who ministers it.” – St. Jerome
