Today is Tuesday the 20th of May, in the Fifth week of Easter.

The community of Taizé sing Frieden, Frieden: Peace I leave you, my peace I give you.

Today’s reading is from the Gospel of John.

Jesus gently invites us not to let our hearts be troubled. There may be times in your life where these words greatly comforted you. This may be one of those times. Try and recall these times, what feelings arise in your heart?

How do you respond to Jesus when you hear him telling you not to be afraid?

Jesus’ gift is peace. As you listen to the reading again, allow Jesus to gift you with the peace he is offering.

Invite Jesus into conversation with you. Together, talk about how, through you, others may experience Jesus’ gift of peace today.
