This is from the Gospel for today, August 14, 2016. Jesus goes on to say that he did not come to establish peace on earth, but rather division. Wait. Lord, could you repeat that again? I thought that the multitude of Heavenly hosts sang on the night of your birth, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." Luke 2:14. The Prophet Isaiah referred to the Messiah as the "Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:5. So what gives?
