A covenant of faithful love…

I saw you struggling in your blood as I was passing,
and I said to you as you lay in your blood:
Live, and grow like the grass of the fields.
You developed, you grew, you reached marriageable age.
Your breasts and your hair both grew, but you were quite naked.
Then I saw you as I was passing.
Your time had come, the time for love.
I spread my cloak over you and covered your nakedness;
I bound myself by oath, I made a covenant with you –
it is the Lord who speaks – and you became mine.
I bathed you in water, I washed the blood off you,
I anointed you with oil.
I gave you embroidered dresses, fine leather shoes,
a line headband and a cloak of silk.
I loaded you with jewels, gave you bracelets for your wrists
and a necklace for your throat.
I gave you nose-ring and earrings;
I put a beautiful diadem on your head.
You were loaded with gold and silver,
and dressed in fine linen and embroidered silks.
Your food was the finest flour, honey and oil.
You grew more beautiful; and you rose to be queen.
Fame of your beauty spread through the nations, since it was perfect,
because I had clothed you with my own splendour –
it is the Lord who speaks.
You have become infatuated with your own beauty;
you have used your fame to make yourself a prostitute;
you have offered your services to all comers.
But I will remember the covenant that I made with you
when you were a little girl,
and I will conclude a covenant with you that shall last forever.
So remember and be covered in shame,
and in your confusion be reduced to silence,
when I have pardoned you for all that you have done –
it is the Lord who speaks.
Ezekiel 16 : 6-16, 60, 63

Dear children! Today I call you to love. Little children, without love you can neither live with God nor with brother. Therefore, I call all of you to open your hearts to the love of God that is so great and open to each one of you. God, out of love for man, has sent me among you to show you the path of salvation, the path of love. If you do not first love God, then you will neither be able to love neighbour nor the one you hate. Therefore, little children, pray and through prayer you will discover love. Thank you for having responded to my call.
