It is all about YOU!

American friar, Richard Rohr, captures the wonder of these Easter days in this beautiful prayer:

Loving God, we love how You love us.
We love how You free us.
We love what You have given and created to surround us.

Help us to recognise, and to rejoice in, what has been given,
even in the midst of what is not given.
Help us not to doubt all that You have given us,
even when we feel our very real shortcomings.

We thank You for the promise and sign of Your love
in the Eternally Risen Christ
who pervades all things in the universe
unbound by any of our categories of logic or theology.

We offer You our lives back in return.
We offer You our bodies, our little lives,
 our racing minds and restless hearts
into this one wondrous circle of Love that is You.

My life is no longer just about me, but it is all about YOU.
