TUESDAY (March 2, 2021)
In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.” (Romans 5:5–6)
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:1–5)
Pax Domini—The Peace of the Lord—is part of the liturgy of Holy Communion. It is at the Lord’s Supper that Christ gives us Himself. As the bread is put into our mouths, and we drink the wine; we get Christ and His peace. There is no need to fear. We are reconciled to the Father, not because of anything we have done, but because of what Christ has done for us. What does it mean to you to know you have Christ’s peace and all is well?
Prayer for Holy Cross Member
Lord Jesus Christ, be with Miles this week. Give him your grace and teach him to learn more of your mercy with each passing day. Amen.
Prayer of the Week (from Sunday)
O God, You see that of ourselves we have no strength. By Your mighty power defend us from all adversities that may happen to the body and from all evil thoughts that may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
