Confirmation Prep #3 = Peace
John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid."
Blessed Pope John Paul II was frequently saying "Be Not Afraid." And there is a beautiful hymn by the same title which I find comforting in times of trouble. The Bible actually mentions "Be Not Afraid" exactly 365 times--enough for one phrase to comfort us every day of the year! As a teenager, there are uncertainties and many changes occurring. I recommend holding on to the peace of Christ as you navigate your way through high school and on to college.
