U2 - Gloria - O Lord if I had anything, anything at all, I'd give it to You...

Today is the beginning of Advent and also the Year of Consecrated Life.  What does this mean to give ones life completely to Christ ?  It is a radical decision and not an easy one.  But it is one that gives great Joy, Hope and Love, not the joy or love that the world talks about but of a greater, a higher joy and a deeper Love that goes beyond anything that the world could give, something that one cannot explain.  But every decision for Christ also demands Sacrifice.  I chose to put up this song from U2 which goes back right to their early days as they set out on the road to stardom.  The lyrics (see below) of the song speak about giving anything to the Lord and that only in You (meaning Christ) I'm complete.   It evokes many memories from me when I saw them back then and I can only say to hear that song live was like something not of this world.

We pray today for all those who have made that Sacrifice to give their lives totally to Christ for the salvation of souls and we pray also for many more who will choose to lay down their lives for Christ in the future.

The lyrics of the Song Gloria:
I try to sing this song
I...I try to stand up
But I can't find my feet
I try, I try to speak up
But only in you I'm complete te domine
Oh Lord, loosen my lips

I try to sing this song
I...I try to get in
But I can't find the door
The door is open
You're standing there
You let me in te domine
Oh Lord, if I had anything
Anything at all
I'd give it to you
I'd give it to you
