The Lord called me from my mother’s womb

“Hear me, O islands, listen, O distant peoples. The LORD called me from birth, from my mother’s womb he gave me my name.” (IS 49: 1) 

Our Lord was the first one who knew about my existence. Even before my Mom, He knew. He not only knows us but also loves us. We are loved from the beginning of our lives; we are “called from birth,” and we have special name, which He “gave me from my mother’s womb.” We will recognize our name fully only when in Heaven, but here, still, we need to follow God’s plan for us, “obedient to the Father.” 

“Hail to you, our King, obedient to the Father; you were led to your crucifixion like a gentle lamb to the slaughter.” (Gospel Acclamation)
