Ephesians 2:13-14 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.
“Oh my beloved, what sorrow and woe is upon you! Do not let up on your prayers. I am doing a new thing, but with an old pattern. Just as my death brought about the salvation of Jew and Gentile alike, so today the sufferings of the Church—my Body—will bring about the conversion of many. Now you see hostility and division, but soon you will see unity and peace. Long for that day. Pray for it. Be wiling to give all God requires to hasten its coming. This is the Day the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad! For he comes to rule the world with righteousness and the peoples with fairness. Children I am near!”
O my Jesus, what comfort, what hope! May your kingdom come and come quickly. May your will be done on earth as in heaven. Grant us grace upon grace to be able to do whatever God asks of us. Help us to be faithful to our mission. Jesus we trust in you! Save souls! Amen.
