Truly Beloved

For the Son was truly beloved of the Father and was never lost, never not loved, never forgotten, never uncared for, despite the punishing agony of the Cross and the seeming abandonment. Jesus knew the Father loved Him and was with Him through it all, even when the suffering was so great thathe cried out to Him why had He forsaken him, such was the overwhelming desolation of the pain upon the cross.  Yet He had lived a life of prayer and connectedness to the Father.  Only One who has known such love and relationship, can give such love.  Thus we can be certain that even when we suffer, even when we are in agony, we are beloved as He was beloved, for He wanted us to be with Him and He held us all on the cross as He was dying and willing us all to be with Him always: that was the gift of love given to Him by the Father.That is the love felt in the Eucharist.  The unbreakable bond of love.

Show me

When all is unclear and life seems full of chaos, we turn to the Lord and ask for guidance, we ask for wisdom, we ask for strength and a clear path. We know God is with us in any and all suffering and we hold on tightly to the Cross in painful times, knowing He knows all we are going through and will lead us always towards inner peace and show us a safe pathway full of His Love.


There is no place you are not

Here I am lord, pinioned by intolerable pain, I lie on the cross with you and find that my heart too is miraculously opened and so, in some mysterious way, I too am held in the Glory and the Mercy of the passion. Thus I am changed for evermore, knowing that, even  in the centre of the most horrendous, indescribable pain, I am closer still to you and can reach out to feel you with me in this most barren and bleakest of places.  There is no place you are not and therefore even here I am safe, for your love strengthens me and my tiny flicker of light is part of your vast and infinite being. Amen
