Peace be with you – Jesus first words to his friends at Easter

Standard

Alleluia Christ is Risen!

Again Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.’ And with that he breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.

John 20:21-22

How amazing that Jesus’ first words to his friends who abandoned him were “Peace be with you”. Then he gave them the gift of the Spirit by breathing on them.

I can’t put this transformation better than CS Lewis:

A very blessed easter to you.
