A place of peace – what a cool message

Paraphrased From the homily today at OLA – Fr John Sullivan
Today’s Gospel reading John 14:1-12

When we hear this passage we often think of Jesus as preparing us a place in heaven for after we die to go meet Him. But what if we try thinking of it in terms of this life…Opening our hearts to Jesus to enter now and prepare for us a place of Peace within ourselves. It is there he will make a place for us of Peace and invite us into it. Peace that the world cannot give. A place that makes you untroubled by your troubles.
I am still smiling thinking about that perspective. It resonated in my soul, preparing a place for me here.
