All is gift

We have so much. Even when we’re not aware of it, we have been given everything we have. God reminds the inhabitants of Jerusalem (i.e., us today) that God has given us untold riches in all that we have. How wonderful are the gifts of our intellects and talents, that have produced innovations and works of art to advance our human culture; what a joy it is to experience a fine meal or a relaxing vacation; how peaceful it is to follow the impulses of our hearts toward generosity and charity! All of these things God has robed us in, has bestowed upon us to make us shine in splendor.

How often do we consider that all we have is given to us by God who loves us and treasures us beyond measure? To what do we dedicate our gifts in the service of throughout this day?

—Ken Weber is a University Minister in the Department of Student Life and Ministry at Loyola University New Orleans.

St. Ignatius’s First Principle and Foundation says “The goal of our life is to live with God forever. God, who loves us, gave us life. Our own response of love allows God's life to flow into us without limit.” One of the ways in which we respond to the love God has given us is through prayer, not only personal prayer but community prayer as well. The Pastoral Ministry Center invites members of our Strake Jesuit Community to share their prayers with us: their concerns, joys, thanksgivings, so that we may walk with them in all these times of their lives.
