The Last Supper: Jesus gives us true peace

The Last Supper: Jesus gives us true peace
Pili Piñero
Tuesday of the Fifth Week of Easter
Gospel text
Jn 14:27-31a
«I am going away and I will come back to you».
Gospel's Commentary
Today, the Lord comforts His disciples. Jesus is leaving! Where will He go? First, He went away to die on the Cross: His death was a departure to Heaven. Three days later He resurrected and, for a brief time, He still appeared to His disciples. Finally, the day of Ascension, with His resurrected body, He went up to Heaven. — The Lord is asking us not to let our heart be frightened. He gives us true peace: Jesus, because He is God, is in Heaven and is with each one of us. Even within us when we receive Him in Communion.
