Salvation is His Gift

Death beckons

It does

In its weird and uncanny ways

And no one can escape its clutches

No one, not even Christ for whom the most painful

And the most fruitful

if I may use such a word

it turned out to be


being the gift of God our Saviour 

Grace of God truly

And only one thing remains to be done

To welcome everyone into the family of God

Through repentance

Through baptism and the other sacraments

My prayer is always

Make all desire to be included in the family of God

Let it be done in accordance with Your will, dear Lord

And surely it is to freely have the gift of salvation 

Offered and  accepted

Embraced and lived out

In joy and in peace

In gratefulness 

In thanksgiving
