The Word… “‘Let the whole house of Israel know with unshakable certainty that this Jesus, whom you crucified, God has made both Lord and Messiah.’ When they heard this, they were seized to the depths of their hearts: What shall we do, brothers?, they asked Peter and the other apostles. ‘Repent,’ said Peter… to them.”
Repent to this God, who is to you the Good Shepherd.

Psalm 23:

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He lets me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside the waters where I can rest, He restores my life.
He leads me in the right paths for the sake of His name.
Though I walk through a dark valley, evil I shall not fear, for You are with me.
Your rod and Your staff give me encouragement.
You set the table for me
Against my adversaries;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup is overflowing.
Yes, goodness and grace will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for days to come.

Come, Holy Spirit !

We live in a war, we do not live by war.
