Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

The Lord was alone ! ! !

In the beginning, Lord I was alone
Like the earth, before your Spirit
moved over the waters.
I was formless and empty
and darkness filled the depths of my heart.
Then, it was as if you declared
'Let there be Light'
and out of the darkness
I began to see hope like a shimmering ray of love
breaking through the parting clouds at the conclusion of the night.
In the beginning, Lord I was alone
but when I saw you in the light
I was no longer afraid.
You held out your hand and though I had a choice
I had no choice 
because to refuse was to embrace again the darkness.
In the beginning, Lord I was alone
Now I feel a part of your creation
loved, wanted, needed, family.
In the light of your presence
I hold out my heart that others
might glimpse your reflection through it
and be drawn from the darkness
that I once embraced
into the light of your sunrise
the brightness of your face.
