May Jesus bless you with His peace.

Written by Fr. Matthew Krempel on September 9, 2012

Jesus told His apostles that when they should enter a town or house, that they should bless the town or house with “Peace to this house,” (Lk. 10:5). St. Francis of Assisi would change this greeting to: “May the Lord bless you with peace.”

We know too that when Jesus appeared to the apostles on the first night of the first day of the week, on the day of His resurrection from the dead, that according to St. John, He greeted them with “Peace be with you.” Again He said: “Peace be with you.” (Jn. 20:19a.21a)

Also, during His last supper, according to St. John, Jesus assured His apostles “Peace I leave you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let your hearts not be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (Jn. 14:27)

St. Irenaeus teaches his disciples that to be at peace with the world is to be at war with God. To be at peace with Christ Jesus, is to be at war with the world. Probably another of version of “you cannot serve both God and mammon," Mt. 6:24.

We often live in this world trying to make peace with it. But such effort is futile. “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you,” (Jn. 15:18-19).

As you enter into this website of Saint Mary Catholic Church, Kingman, Arizona, we hope that you will find the peace of the Lord. “Seek and you shall find,” (Mt. 7:7). We are a community (family) of believers in Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and in the judgment of the Lord when He comes again.

We hope that you not only find schedules and activities listed here on this website; rather, we hope that you will discover the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church which is based upon Jesus the Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life, and no one comes to the Father, but by Him alone, (cf. Jn. 14:6). We hope that you enjoy the recorded Sunday homilies given by Fr. Matthew; you can also hear them in Spanish. We hope that the pages which offer answers to pending and confusing questions of our time will enlighten you and help you to see more clearly. Although darkness reigns in our world, even from the time that Judas Iscariot left the last supper, when it was night (cf. Jn. 13:30), you may still find the light of Christ risen from the darkness of the tomb as did Mary Magdalene. “Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb, (Jn. 20:1). . . . “Jesus said to her, ‘Why are you weeping. Whom do you seek?’” (Jn. 20:15).

Truly yours in Christ Jesus,
Fr. Matthew Krempel
