REFLECT – Our group just arrived into Rome and we all settled into our rooms. After putting my bags down I found my way into the chapel. As I knelt in the dark chapel late at night, exhausted by the travel, I looked at Jesus in the Tabernacle and was filled with a sense of deep gratitude at all the ways He has blessed me. I began thanking Him for every little thing. At the end of this litany of gratitude my soul rested in the fullness of His Presence… and I was silent. Finally the Lord had room to speak and in the silence of my heart I heard, “Will you love me with an undivided heart?” Fear and joy, dread and love intermingled in my heart. After a moment of shock, a deep peace filled my heart and I was able to respond, “Yes Lord, I give you everything…and do with me as You please.”
