The vocation to love
The deepest wound of all is that which affects the heart:
the feeling that one has not been loved,
that one is not precious to anyone.
Many people today are wounded at heart.
Each of us can do something to heal their wounds.
We have hands that can make things,
and minds that can understand things.
But above all we have hearts that can give life.
We are not sterile people.
We can give life to people who are inwardly broken.
We can show them that they are important,
and so bring life to them.
Today, Good Shepherd Sunday, is also vocations Sunday.
But all vocations are vocations to love.

Happy Sunday everyone! Make the first hour of your week a happy, relaxing and reflective one by giving thanks for all your blessings and listening to the word of God. See you at mass! <3
