End of Scholl Year Mass
You are at home.
It is a heavy night.
A storm has broken. There is thunder and lightning and torrential rain.
The door creaks.
You are afraid.
But in the same night your father or mother comes to you and takes you in arms, raises you to cheek.
You are not afraid. Despite the same storm, thunder, lightning and torrential rain.
We are all the children of God.
Today, Jesus Christ, the master and the king of all storm is taking everyone in his arms and is speaking to us:
I leave you peace, my own peace I give you.
This the last lesson of the school year.
And there is only one homework. Just one.
Believe, Jesus raises you to his cheek and gives you peace.
