The human psyche is similar for all people, even if we
don’t want to believe in our shared reality. We all desire
approval and need love from our parent(s). Today’s
Gospel speaks of the most beautiful relationship
that is desired in our hearts. If you are a parent, be
this same kind of bold, embracing, and affirming parent
to your child. Purposely seek out opportunities (or
times) to tell your child that you are well pleased with
them . If you never received this kind of attention from God.
your parent(s), living or deceased, name all the gifts
and traits they gave to you to be this blessed creation
of God’s. You are loved deeply and God is well
pleased. Are you well pleased with yourself? Focus on
the innate gifts you have been given as a chosen child with God.
