Quote for Reflection (Sunday, June 9, 2024)

“O Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world, grant us Thy peace!” That’s a tremendous prayer to take on our lips, for it means peace at a great price; the peace of the cross, of absolute, acceptance, utter abandonment to God – a peace offering, you remember, was one of the three great Temple sacrifices and the one in which the offerer drew nearest to God and had communion with God”.

Evelyn Underhill, The Fruits of the Spirit.
