The Mirade. Of Life
Wednesday, July 26 * Sts. Joachim and Anne € Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you... Jeremiah 1:5
I was reminded of this enduring love of God recently when a young mother in our parish was pregnant with her second child. The family sits in the front pew so it was easy to be aware of how the baby was growing. Each week this mother's belly grew larger until she could hardly sit or stand comfortably. When the newborn baby was brought to church, many of us drew near to view the miracle of life that had been forming before our very eyes. As I looked at the dell-Cate, beautiful child, I thought of the absolute wonder of God's love and the amazing gift of birth.
Pause to think about this miracle of life as you go through your day today.
