Snapshot 3: Love Bears Fruit


– Br. Michael, ofm


Your name forever,

O God,

is that of love.

Even when we

masquerade it

or perverse it

you remain faithfully


you who are

love and mercy in abundance

from one generation to the next.



You call us to bear fruit,

for we are planted in you.

When we fail to do so,

you tend to the plant of our life

and once again give us the chance

to bear fruit in love

for eternally you are



God, the great I AM,

you know us each by name and love us beyond our knowing.

In these Lenten days and challenging times

guide us in your ways of love and mercy

so, we may bear fruit of love and mercy in this hurting world,

trusting that you are with us now and in generations to come.




Scripture Inspiration: Exodus 3.1-8a, 13-15 and Luke 13.6-9
