FAITH IN FOCUS:
W
PARTING GIFT
hen two Hebrewspeaking people
greet each other, they say
“Shalom aleichem” which
means “Peace be with
you.” When two Arabicspeakers give the same
greeting, they say “Salaam
aleichem.” Shalom/salaam
refers to the state of integrity, harmony, serenity
and completeness
within a person’s life.
Peace is not merely
the absence of struggle but the abiding
presence of calm.
In today’s gospel
Jesus gives his disciples a parting gift, a
gift that he says the
world cannot give:
peace. To have faith in Jesus and be possessed by
the Holy Spirit means that
we enjoy the peace of
Christ.
Of course, in everyday talk,
peace usually means the
end of war (which often is
not peace but simply truce)
or the idea of peace and
quiet, when we are not
troubled and are allowed
just to “chill out” or have a
few moments to ourselves.
But the peace that Jesus
offers us is that deep-down
sense of wellbeing that
comes from knowing that
we are loved by God, have
been called to be God’s
children in baptism and are
permanently held in the
hand of a God who will nev-
er let us be lost, unless we
absolutely insist on it.
Christian peace brings
calmness.
H
owever, the peace
we enjoy is not a
static thing; it’s something
active and dynamic. Consequently we have to work at
keeping this peace alive,
which is what Jesus meant
when he said “Blessed are
the peacemakers”. We
have to work with the Holy
Spirit to keep our relationship with God alive and
active and then we have to
work for unity among ourselves so that the gift of
peace may be a reality in
our communities.
Some people can have a
false sense of security.
Others can have
a false sense of
peace. If our
peace is just built
on not being troubled by others,
not having worries about our job,
our family or our
finances, then we
are simply enjoying freedom from
anxiety. If, however, our
peace is built on our relationship with God, on our
trust in his promises to us
and the confidence that his
always keeps his word,
then we enjoy that peace of
Christ which the world cannot give. And this is what
we wish each other at every Mass when we turn to
each other and say, “Peace
be with you”.

Feedback from the Cytun Pentecostal
Parkfields Lunches Meeting
At the last of the Cytun Pentecostal Parkfields lunches on Monday, Dr. Mike Ward
spoke about ‘The World and its Climate’ as
experienced by the impoverished people of
the Philippines. The numbers of typhoons
and cyclones resulting in widespread
deaths and devastation among the peoples of South East Asia have increased as
a result of world-wide climate change
caused by human exploitation. The government of the Philippines having at last
realised that the cutting down of mangrove
swamps has destroyed natural barriers
against death dealing winds has begun replanting in the expectation of saving lives.
He recommended support for the Christian
Aid Fellowship for Organising Endeavours
(FORCE) as a way of helping the people of
the Philippines to help themselves.
