Easter Reflections: April 25, 2016 St. Mark, Evangelist

Greet one another with a kiss of love. (I Peter 5:14)

In a first reading of I Peter 5:5-14, it can seem dull and uninspiring just like Benjamin Franklin’s POOR RICHARD.   Both are words of practical advice. Peter is writing to both the young and the elderly about relating to each other in a hostile environment. He closes with “Greet one another with a kiss of love.” In the Eucharist we share the kiss of peace as a sign of our unity before we receive the Body and Blood of Jesus. In today’s Eucharist will my kiss of peace be the “kiss of love” of which Peter writes? If not, what do I need to do to make it a “kiss of love,” mercy peace?
