We have spent the season of Lent with the Prayer of Saint Francis that invited us to be “Open to Peace.” In this moment, the Sunday after Easter, we find that Jesus breathes a word of peace onto his disciples. This Sunday, we will begin to exhale the same hatred, injury, doubt, despair, darkness, and sadness that was holding those disciples captive.(see more)
