Reflection for the Week - May 8

Being a Christian promises to give us peace with God, but this doesn’t necessarily translate into a peaceful and easy life. If you’re looking for peace, tranquility, and less stress, you may not find it here. Living spirituality, following the Crucified and Risen One in the present, does not mean that all our problems will be solved, but it does enable us to live in community with God in spite of them. Christian truth offers us an engagement with reality, not an escape from it.
