To pass the peace

To pass the peace

To pass the peace is a revolutionary act.

It means to trust the outsider we fear, to wish well those who have hurt us; and to forgive at last ourselves.

To offer the blessing to those around you is to love your neighbor and yourself and to be at peace with God.

Pax vobiscum. Peace. Peace.
