We can take a cue from Christ as evangelizers in the world today as Saint Francis did. Even if we’re not formal missionaries, we’re sent out from each Eucharist into the world carrying a message of peace.

The journey Jesus begins in today’s Gospel was difficult—not only because robbers, deserts and wild beasts lay along the road to Jerusalem. At the end of his journey, Jesus will face crucifixion and death.

Jesus assured his followers that he will send “the Advocate, the Holy Spirit,” who will teach them and remind them of all Jesus told them. In effect, Jesus is promising that the Church can always rely on the Spirit to guide it in troubled times. The Spirit will help us discover the peace that Jesus gives.
