Catherine of Siena: speaking peace

Friday, April 29, 2022
    Feast of Catherine of Siena, Mystic, Teacher, 1380
    [Jesus:] “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you.”
    —Luke 10:5-6 (NIV)
    The obedient man speaks words of peace all his life, and at his death receives that which was promised him at his death by his superior, that is to say, eternal life, the vision of peace, and of supreme and eternal tranquillity and rest, the inestimable good which no one can value or understand, for, being the infinite good, it cannot be understood by anything smaller than itself.
    ... Catherine of Siena (1347-1380), Dialog of Catherine of Siena [1378], Treatise of Obedience, ix. (see the book)
    See also Luke 10:5-6; Ps. 85:8; Matt. 10:12-13; 11:28-30; John 14:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You grant Your people true peace.
