The Lord is compassion and love. Slow to anger and rich in mercy.
God our Father, Abba Father, love is a feeling so deep, so complex, so misunderstood, so misused and abused, how can we possibly comprehend the extent to which our Creator loves us? You gave, for us, the life of your only Son in sacrifice, that we may be saved and enjoy eternal life! Your love is infinite, as you indeed are Infinite. You are Righteous, and Gracious. The Fount of Mercy and Benevolence.
Jesus shared his Body and his Blood at the Last Supper, the same Body and Blood which is consecrated in the Holy Eucharist. He became a sacrificial Lamb, offered on the Cross of our iniquities, atoning for the sins of humanity. We receive the Body and Blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus, when we partake of the Eucharist. Jesus enters into our heart and lives within us and through the Power of your Spirit, we are one with him and with you Father, through him.
True Christianity is about the union of the Creator of the universe and His beloved children, in Christ. We are forevermore members of your family and of your Royal Household, dear Father, for you have deigned it so, according to your Divine Providence. Let us live love. Let us fill our beings with Christ’s love. May we die to ourselves and live in Christ. We love you, and we make this prayer in Jesus’ Name. Amen
