with the Sign of the Cross, to pray in His Name.
You, O Lord,
I see in life. In everything surrounding me that is of You, I see beauty,
wholeness, peace, joy and most especially love. Yours is a love that
transforms, that reaches into the inner landscape of my soul. There
is no mountain high enough or valley low enough that can keep Your Love
from reaching me. No matter what I do or where I go, You will always
be there, loving me, leading me home. You lead me to the desire of Your
Heart, an inner Communion with You in Your Heart. Your desire is for
an intimate, profound relationship with me and with each of the hearts
and souls, which You created for the purpose of Love. As I sense Your
Loving Presence in Life as a child, I awaken to Your Heart and am moved.
