God Calls You by Name

Image by Ben Scherjon from Pixabay God calls each one of you by name. All of you are the “you” of God, precious in his eyes, worthy of respect and loved (cf. Isaiah 43:4). Welcome with joy this dialogue that God offers you, this appeal he makes to you, calling you by name. We were created to love and to be loved. God, who is Love, created us to make us participants in his life, to be loved by him and to love him, and with him, to love all other people. This is God’s “dream” for humankind.
