We Belong to God

We Belong to God

Recently, one of our friars said this in a homily:

“It does not matter who we are, but whose we are.”

I think what he was trying to tell us is that the most important reality of our identity is that we belong to God. Once we really believe that, and appreciate what it means, everything else falls into place. At least, those words have given me something to pray over, and the thought re-occurs to me at times during the day.
