This was the statement made by Jesus to his disciples who were lost and shattered because Jesus was condemned, put to death and was crucified on the cross. The Master and their leader who was everything for them is no more now, and this made them anxious, worried and insecure for they were fishermen by profession, and they had given up their fishing nets and followed Jesus.
Jesus appears to them and settles their disturbed minds and hearts stating “Peace Be with You” for me this is a beautiful phrase, very affirming and assuring – to know that all is not lost. Everything happens for a purpose, and each of us are a part of the divine plan.
Peace that is not so common today in our country and in the world – has to begin from each one of us, when we are at peace, our families will be in peace, our neighbourhood will be in peace and our country too will become a peace loving country. I love this quote of Lord Buddha that says “ Peace is within, Do not look for it outside “
