Peace between all

Daily Reading for January 31

Peace between victor and vanquished

Peace between old and young

Peace between rich and poor

The peace of Christ above all.

Always keep God’s peace and love among you, and when you have to seek guidance about your affairs, take great care to be of one mind. Live in mutual good-will also with Christ’s other servants. . . .Never think you are superior to other people who share your faith and way of life. —Cuthbert’s last words

Christ be within me

Christ be beside me

Christ in the stranger

Christ in the friend

Christ in my speaking

Christ in my thinking

Christ in my working

Christ at my end.

May you see the face of Christ in everyone you meet. May everyone you meet see the face of Christ in you.
