Monday of Holy Week

Lord, sometimes I think of God's love as something hard to find, something that can be used up, something that I need to get before others can take it from me. But I know, deep in my heart, that Your Love is not like that. I know that your love is all around me, every minute of everyday. Teach me how not to doubt your eternal love. Help me to learn to receive your Love with open hands and share that love generously with those around us. These I ask, in Jesus' name. Amen.
