On a recent retreat, Fr. Philip Scott (www.familiadejesusperu.org) entreated us to explore the circumstances of our own conception, of our mother’s pregnancy and of our birth, and further to ask Father to reveal his delight, heavens delight in us, regardless of our circumstances. As I prayed, these words came to me, “In the beginning God made me.” And I understood that God was going to tell me a story. I got out my journal and pen and began to write. This is my story, but it could just as easily be yours with a few minor changes to the details. Make it your own!
In the beginning God made me. He wanted me. He saw me. He set out to find the perfect people to be my parents, perfect for starting me on my path to holiness. My parents would be in charge not only of me, but of four other precious souls that God had envisioned in his perfect plan for me.
