At Noonday

From the Daily Office (Sext)...
Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles, "Peace I give to you; my peace I leave with you:" Regard not our sins, but the faith of your Church, and give to us the peace and unity of that heavenly city, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, now and for ever. Amen.
The Blood of Christ and the Peace of Christ are intrinsically woven together and if we lack either, we are truly lost.  In this peace, we hear the whisper of the Holy Spirit as he comforts us with the words Ego te absolvo (I forgive you).  Its through this peace that we're also empowered to forgive others and of equal importance, the power to forgive ourselves.
