We begin to pray the two major sections of the Peace Prayer— “Lord...Divine Master”—and the ground beneath our feet immediately begins to move. We realize and acknowledge that the universe was not designed to revolve around me and my petty wants and desires. Indeed, by virtue of my baptism, I am called to walk in the footprints of Jesus who, in emptying himself, surrendering and serving God’s will, has become the Lord and Divine Master of the universe.
