Reflection Questions:

  • How can we take a deep breath and, like Joseph, open to discover what may be an unexpected gift in the midst of a difficult situation? 
  • What will help us choose peace and serenity instead of joining chaos when we encounter it? 
  • How are we contributing to chaos instead of the reign of truth and grace? 
  • Who in your life or community needs a “kiss” of peaceful joy and the spirit of Christ?
