Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give it to you.  Do not let your hearts be troubled.  – Jn 14:27

Reflection.  Loneliness can be a big obstacle to peace of mind.  But it can also be a spur for us to become more creative.  Once we accept the fact that we will always have a certain amount of loneliness in our lives, we can live with it, and stop looking for false solutions.  God is the only One Who will ultimately fill that void.

Prayer.  Dear Jesus, You offer me Your peace, and I accept it.  I also accept my loneliness as a reminder that I am never really alone, for You are with me always.
