The Same Foolish Love That Knew No Limits

Hey everyone-


Im in a hotel in Dallas, and have been reading from 1 Corinthians 11 tonight about “Communion/the Lord’s Supper”.  In this season of Lent i think its important to take the time to stop and reflect on not only the story of what happened to Jesus, but how this single act of selflessness can be imitated in each of our lives daily………as we are on the road, meeting new people, forming new relationships, in the studio, in the writing process, taking care of our families, or in the busyness of our day to day.

Here is a prayer I found that I am going to start praying and thinking on each day as the march towards Easter continues.

I LOVE this line in the prayer…

Let me place my death in Yours 

and my weakness in Your abandonment,Take hold of me with Your love,that same foolish love that knew no limits,and let me offer myself to the Father with You so that I may rise with You to eternal life.”


How lucky we are to be held by a foolish love that knows no limits. 

Amen


Catholic Prayers

A Lenten Prayer called the Passion

Dear Lord Jesus, by Your Passion and ResurrectionYou brought life to the world.But the glory of the Resurrectioncame only after the sufferings of the Passion.You laid down Your life willinglyand gave up everything for us.Your body was broken and fastened to a Cross,Your clothing became the prize of soldiers,your blood ebbed slowly but surely away,and Your Mother was entrusted to the beloved disciple.Stretched out on the Cross,deprived of all earthly possessions and human aid, You cried out to Your Father that the end had come.You had accomplished the work given You, and You committed into His hands, as a perfect gift, the little life that remained to You.Lord, teach me to accept all afflictionsafter the example You have given.Let me place my death in Yours and my weakness in Your abandonment,Take hold of me with Your love,that same foolish love that knew no limits,and let me offer myself to the Father with You so that I may rise with You to eternal life.
