Mass in a Moment
By Margaret Bick
We do not simply leave the celebration of the Eucharist; we are sent forth.
Although the eucharistic table is the source, summit and centre of our lives, we cannot live our whole lives there. “Go,” we are told. “Go in peace.”
Our communion with Christ and with one another demands that our share life be lived in peace. We cannot be a sign of the kingdom of God for all the world to see, if we do not live the peace we preach.
Parking lot problems, encounters at parish meetings, community controversies may tempt us toward other behavior; but the God who binds our lives together with Christ’s and who dwells within us as in a temple says, “Go in peace.”
May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus.
