“Peace Upon Our Troubled World”: a detailed reflection that evaluates the influence of Jesus’s post-resurrection visits to the people of today and on today’s chaotic world.. “Peace Upon Our Troubled World” is the creation of published author Canice C. Njoku, C.S.Sp, a Catholic Priest and a member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, popularly known as the Spiritans. In 2003, he responded to the call to religious life. He has been a missionary in Puerto Rico, since 2014.
Canice shares, “In a world where both the interior and exterior peace of its inhabitants is under constant threat by one form of chaos or the other, is there any hope for lasting peace? This reflection explores the impact of Jesus’ gift of peace to his disciples during his post-resurrection visits in John 20:19–31. Importantly, it carefully evaluates the relevance of this visit to all living in today’s challenging and chaotic world.
“This work reveals that peace is a gift from God and that Jesus’ salutation (“Peace be with you”), which communicates much peace and liberates every troubled soul, is still very much re-echoed to all today. Hence, it is still relevant for the continuous restoration and sustenance of peace in both the individual and our entire world.
“Faith and humility are prerequisites for receiving the peace that Christ offers. Also, the Holy Spirit is a principal agent in humankind’s search for lasting peace, and peace is not primarily a characteristic of happenings in the world but also a human attitude and a characteristic of all who have received it.
“The title of this little book speaks for itself. The peace that Christ offers is still very much needed in every soul and in our world at large. It is what our world lacks and needs most today, and this is what I present to you in this little book.
“This book consists of five chapters. Chapter one is the general introduction. Chapter two is a broad overview on peace. Chapter three is a brief analysis of John 20:19–20. The fourth chapter contextualizes Jesus’ post-resurrection visit and the peace he offered. The final chapter is a brief summary and conclusion of the reflection.
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Canice C. Njoku, C.S.Sp’s new book presents a profound manuscript that provides the necessary hope and faith one can embrace in order to surmount the challenges in today’s chaotic world.
