“This is why the Father loves me,
because I lay down my life in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own.
I have power to lay it down, and power to take it up again.
This command I have received from my Father.”
Allow that power to find a home in your heart.
Ask for the grace to reflect that “God-power” as you move into your day.
Heritage word—“Faith gives us the power, the POWER to HOLD ON when every reason for hope seems contradicted and smothered by the events of life.”
(Sister Mary Anselm, 6th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
