*************************************************

 

In his poem ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’ Yeats tells us that peace comes dropping slow.  Yeats understood that happiness and sadness wash over us like the tide.  But peace is harder to obtain that to maintain. When we achieve peace in our hearts, we are free to love God in a full and all-embracing way. Today’s Gospel shares this truth with us.  Jesus tells us to be assured that there is a place for us in his Father’s house, he will go ahead of us and prepare it.  Jesus calms any fears we may have of being cut adrift, of being let go or abandoned.  Jesus has shown us the way to God.  The ‘way’ is not easy, it is not without pain and consistent effort.  However, we can wake up every day to begin again, to right any wrongs and to take another step in the right direction.  This will bring us ultimate peace.
