my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.
The above prayer is a prayer from St. Ignatius. It’s message is simple, but profound. We give because we have received. We respond because we have been invited by God into relationship with God. God has been at work continuously in our lives, and God continues to work in our lives. All is gift from God.
If all in my life is gift from God, what does that call me to?
