OUT OF ORLANDO, by Barbara Zeman

As I sat here this morning reading out loud the names of the victims, I was moved to tears. Who wouldn’t be? Who were these people? What were their stories? Did they have an inclining that this would happen? Why do we care? In today’s readings I am moved by the circumstances we find ourselves in with Jesus in the gospel. The question again jumps out for me. It’s a question I face everyday in the mirror 'Who am I?'

I come from God.
I see miracles everywhere I set my gaze.
 
Born to the earth through a woman who gave birth.
Divine and human am I. 
My feet touch the ground. 

You ARE Divine Love

Jesus, my brother, 
you who are truly and perfectly human, 
you who transcended the path to the Divine,

which you made manifest 
through your very willingness 
to open completely to love.
 
In your total surrender 
give me the eyes
