In a world that is growing increasingly dystopian, the realisation of the realm of shalom ushered in by Jesus seems to be getting further and further away, or perhaps being driven further underground. “Patience!” counsels Peter to his persecuted community: “with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.”

In the meantime? “Strive to be at peace, without spot or blemish.” Maintain focus on the Way you have been called to walk, no matter the obstacles, distractions and disappointments. Cultivate patience as part of the process towards the sacred vision that awaits fulfilment.
