The deepest wound of all is that which affects the heart:

The feeling that one has not been loved,

The one is not precious to anyone.

Each of us can do something to heal their wounds

We have hands that can make things,

And minds that can understand things.

But above all we have hearts that can give life.

We are not sterile people.

We can give life to people who are inwardly broken.

We can show them they are important, and so bring life to them.

Today, Good Shepherd Sunday is also vocations Sunday.

But all vocations are vocations to love.
