Television has been a delightful source of entertainment to me. Still, it is filled with murders, detectives, crime, and mayhem. It does not resemble my life.
“Peace be with you,” you said to your Apostles,
and you say to us, your 21st-century disciples.
I thank you for the order and harmony
I experience in my neighborhood
and in my life.
Continue to bless my family and friends
with a good measure of peace
and the ability to bring peace where it is lacking.
I choose to watch no crime series on TV this evening. I will look for laughter, nature, and good news.
