I Have Given You Love, So That You May Give it to Others
Lord of all, you have given yourself entirely to me without reserve;
Oh, that I may give myself to you entirely and without reserve.
Everywhere I look I see your goodness.
You are the gentle eyes of the elderly man that looks toward me as I stand in line at the market.
You are the laughter I hear from the children waiting for the school bus near my house most mornings.
You are the song of the birds in my trees;
You are the cooing voice of the baby on his daddy’s shoulder at mass in the pew in front of me on Sunday morning.
There is nowhere I look that I do not see your face. Alleluia
It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain…..John 15:16
"I have given you my love, so that you may give it to others." BVM, Medjugorje to Marija 9-1985
