What’s behind what we remember and indeed celebrate today? The following mediation on Divine Love attempts to answer.
Before all Time, before the very foundations of the universe were laid, God thought of you, His child. God the Father thought of every moment of your earthly existence. He thought of the great joy there was when you came into the world. He thought of the moments of your childhood, as His grace filled your heart and mind in the holy stillness. He thought of your emergence into adulthood and your real desire for Him in the depths of your heart. He thought of your studies, gently guiding a heart and mind questing for Him. God the Father thought of every moment of your earthly existence, and smiled. For this child of His, Called by Name, is filled with the goodness of God. And then God the Father breathed and the universe came into being. Then one day, as God planned before all Time, you came into the world.
