And in The End, the Love you take...

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

The End of a much ballyhooed 
Papal Encyclical
 Laudato Si'

 245. God, who calls us to generous commitment and to give him our all, offers us the light and the strength needed to continue on our way. In the heart of this world, the Lord of life, who loves us so much, is always present. He does not abandon us, he does not leave us alone, for he has united himself definitively to our earth, and his love constantly impels us to find new ways forward. Praise be to him!

+       +       +

God of love, show us our place in this world
as channels of your love
for all the creatures of this earth,
for not one of them is forgotten in your sight.
Enlighten those who possess power and money
that they may avoid the sin of indifference,
that they may love the common good, advance the weak,
and care for this world in which we live.
The poor and the earth are crying out.
O Lord, seize us with your power and light,
help us to protect all life,
to prepare for a better future,
for the coming of your Kingdom
of justice, peace, love and beauty.
Praise be to you!

Given in Rome at Saint Peter's on 24 May,
the Solemnity of Pentecost,

in the year 2015,

the third of my Pontificate.
A beautiful postscript

Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

God be praised! It is so beautiful and a confirmation as well that all is connected social, moral, spiritual and physical. Thanks for your posts!
