#LaudatoSi5 – The Invested Love of God

 

God’s Blessings

God’s blessings abound
they are all around
from the stars above
to the earth below
love invested in each part.

God’s blessings abound
they are within us
from are beating heart
to our every breath
love invested in each part.

God’s blessings abound
they are here and now
in times of trial
in times of joy
love invested in each part.

God’s blessings abound
we do not go without
my words and my deeds
declare this good news:
love invested in each part.

 

God’s love is invested into each part of who we are and all of creation. It is why St. Francis of Assisi was able to see and declare: Brother Sun, Sister Moon and so on. It is why he was able to challenge us to be mothers, siblings and spouses to Christ. It is why we was able to abandon his all and entrust his life to God. He knew God’s blessings abound because God invested love into everything.

 

Where are we investing ourselves?
How are we investing ourselves?
Can we invest ourselves to build up the human family and care for our common home?
What does that look like in these days?
What is the Love which has been invested into you inviting you to?
