8 February Reflection Quote

For some of us, it is easier to receive others as a gift from the loving hands of God, than to see ourselves in this way. To see ourselves in this way frees us to be who God made us to be. Our limitations remain, but they need not enslave us. – how has self-acceptance made you freer? – what happens when you are tormented by your limitations? – when have you had a sense of being a gift from the loving hands of God?

The willingness to be vulnerable is a sign of love, and it demands courage and strength. – how might vulnerability be a sign of sensitivity and love? – has contemplating the Heart of Jesus taught you to be vulnerable? – who are the vulnerable ones who most need us to be the Heart of God?
