A Kiss of Peace
In this program, the shepherds of the Church, the bishops, provide reflections to give spiritual encouragement to their flocks, speaking of love and truth, justice and peace.
I will listen for what God, the LORD, has to say;
surely he will speak of peace
To his people and to his faithful.
May they not turn to foolishness!
Near indeed is his salvation for those who fear him;
glory will dwell in our land.
Love and truth will meet;
justice and peace will kiss.
Truth will spring from the earth;
justice will look down from heaven.
Yes, the LORD will grant his bounty;
our land will yield its produce.
Justice will march before him,
and make a way for his footsteps.
In this program, the shepherds of the Church, the bishops, provide reflections to give spiritual encouragement to their flocks. The content of the reflection is summarized in the psalm verse 85:10 -- mercy, truth, justice, and peace, all coming together in a kiss. The bishops' daily reflections are intended to communicate Christ's mercy and truth, justice and peace to the hearts of the listeners. This communication consists not just in information (although some teaching may be a necessary part of encouragement), but hopefully also facilitates transformation, through the communication of grace.
