Four Things That Bring Great Peace Christ My child, now I will teach you the way of peace and true freedom. Disciple Do as you say, Lord. This pleases me very much. Christ Try, my child, to do the will of another rather than your own. Always choose to have less rather than more. Always seek to take the last place, and to be subject to everyone. Always desire and pray that the will of God may be perfectly fulfilled in you. You will see that if you are disposed to do this you will find peace and serenity. Disciple Lord, your words have such perfection in them: few words, but so full of meaning and promise. If I would faithfully observe them, I would not be troubled so easily. I realize that whenever I find myself disquieted and disturbed, it is because I have strayed from your teachings. Lord, you who can do all things and always love the good of my soul, increase your grace in me, so that I can put your words into practice and fulfill the work of my salvation. A PRAYER AGAINST EVIL THOU

The Gospel recounts a day in the life of Jesus. “Jesus was passing through a field of grain” and “his disciples began to make a path while picking the heads of grain.” Mark’s Gospel places this scene after a series of encounters Jesus has had with sinners and tax collectors. It seems that some of the Pharisees have grown exasperated with Jesus’ “undisciplined behavior” and they let him know it. So the Pharisees speak up again and confront Jesus, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?” Is that all they can see—that the law of the Sabbath is being broken? Is there more to the situation than immediately meets the eye? Can they see that the disciples are accompanied by the Messiah, the Son of God? Can they see the compassion and providence of God who is Father and chooses to provide for his children

  The Law of the Spirit We Christians are indeed under the law as other men, but, as I have already said, it is the new law, the law of the Spirit of Christ. We are under grace. That law, which to nature is a grievous bondage, is to those who live under the power of God’s presence, what it was meant to be, a rejoicing. When then we feel reluctant to serve God, when thoughts rise within us as if He were a hard Master, and that His promises are not attractive enough to balance the strictness of His commandments, let us recollect that we, as being Christians, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, and let us act upon the conviction of it. Let us go to Him for grace. Let us seek His face. Let us come where He gives grace. Let us come to the ordinances of grace, in which Christ gives His Holy Spirit, to enable us to do that which by nature we cannot do, and to be “the servants of righteousness.” They who pray for His saving help to change their likings and dislikings, their tastes, their
