I knew you, I dedicated you, I appointed you

“The word of the LORD came to me, saying: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.” (JER 1: 4-5)

In just a few words, we have fully expressed life’s mission. “I knew you”: I loved you and chose you; “I dedicated you”: I set you apart to be a prophet; “I appointed you”: take care of my words, be my ambassador. What a dignity we have, how amazingly we are loved. Formed by God’s love, dedicated and appointed by Him, we “cannot fully find ourselves except through a sincere gift of ourselves” (GS, 24)

“The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives.” (Gospel Acclamation)
