Is 2:1-5;    Ps 122:1-2, 3-4b, 4cd-5, 6-7, 8-9;    Mt 8:5-11

R. Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.

I rejoiced because they said to me,
“We will go up to the house of the LORD.”
And now we have set foot
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem, built as a city
with compact unity.
To it the tribes go up,
the tribes of the LORD.

According to the decree for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
In it are set up judgment seats,
seats for the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
May those who love you prosper!
May peace be within your walls,
prosperity in your buildings.

Because of my relatives and friends
I will say, “Peace be within you!”
Because of the house of the LORD, our God,
I will pray for your good.

– from “Daily Bread”

“They shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into
pruning hooks.”

In Isaiah’s idyllic vision — a world where nations no longer wage
or even train for war — the peoples of the world are resourceful
participants in its transformation, refashioning weapons into farm
implements. But how can we dismantle the modern war machine, bound
as it is to our economy and mindset? We should not be put off by
the enormity and complexity of this task; rather, the scale of the
challenge highlights our necessary participation in it. Let us
begin by imagining our world retooled for peace. As we walk in the
light of the Lord, let us see clearly our role as ambassadors of

“For willingness to be agents of God’s love and justice, we pray.”

459. The supernatural involves a change of a different order, a
change that is at once far more radical and more delicate, a change
that affects a being by causing it to be the very thing it was but
in a different way.
