My great joy is knowing that God has chosen me to be a willing instrument in His hand. Father Louis-Marie Parent, OMI

Reflection on Father Parent's thoughts: 
In this thought, “My great joy is knowing that God has chosen me to be a willing instrument in His hand”, Father Parent tells us that that he is (we are) chosen by God to be willing instruments in His hand,

  • like the knife wielded by a sculptor who brings a work of art to life in a piece of abandoned wood;
  • like a painter's brush, using gestures and colours to help us discover the beauty of a landscape;
  • like the conversation of a passer-by who stops to face the person sitting on the pavement asking for alms;
  • like a loving mother, available at any hour of the day or night to soothe her child in need...

We don't choose those whom God places on our path, but we are invited to welcome them. God has chosen us for that!

This word from Father Parent tell me that God is calling us to be his partners in telling the world about His infinite love! And it gives me great joy to sometimes succeed in making someone happier!

How lucky we are to be able to live HIS LIFE, the LIFE that connects us to the whole universe and to an all-loving God!
