Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross


“Lord, I receive this GIFT. I receive this new life that you have given me. My life is not mine. It is YOURS (ours).

I don’t know how to live it. I keep making a mess of things. You know this better than me. But still, Lord, I offer my life in return. Messy and broken and flawed as it is and will be.

I offer you not what I do, but my very self: I offer myself to be loved; to be healed, to be restored, so that with You my life can be broken and given away in love.

Heal me, Lord, that I be well. Make me whole, Lord, that I may be broken by my choice. Restore me that I can give my self away.

Lord, I come. I come.”
