The sign of peace

Monthly Prayer Leaflet for the Rosary Teams

Our theme for the year:
“You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit”

« May the peace of the Lord be always with you »

The sign of peace which the priest invites us to exchange before communion is neither a friendly gesture nor a simple gesture of reconciliation, but the salutation of the Risen Christ.

In fact, the sign of peace thus exchanged is like a gift I offer to my brother or sister. I do not give peace, it is Jesus who gives it to me and it passes through me, not without internally transforming me.

The sign of peace invites me to forgiveness and generosity in my relationship with others. Then, I understand that I receive my brother or sister as I receive the very Body of the Lord.

It is the Lord who is our peace. Peace, gift of God entrusted to mankind must be made as God wants it.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, united in the same Spirit, let us go in the peace and joy of Christ to bring the Good News to all nations!
