Grace Upon Grace


May you be filled with the awareness of the Creator’s eternal love for you.


Psalm 103:1-2

Bless the Lord, my soul; all my being, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, my soul; do not forget all the gifts of God.


How amazing that the Creator of the universe created you and me!

From space dust our bodies are fashioned. As Teilhard de Chardin said, “We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

We have been graced with eternal life.

It’s a totally free gift from our Maker who loved us into existence and who could not stop loving us any more than we could stop loving our own sons or daughters…or any more than we could stop the sun from shining.

The Love that shines upon us has nothing to do with what we do to merit it, or any achievements or accomplishments…or mistakes we make or struggles we have…but it has everything to do with Who God Is: Love. 

As St. Paul says, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).

Alleluia! Amen.
