Love is prepared



A song featured on 'Making Music to your name' is called 'Love is prepared'.

You can listen to the song as per usual by clicking on the song title. Scroll down to track 4.

The title and lyrics are below.


This Sunday's Gospel is taken from John 21:1-19. It includes the moving encounter of St Peter with the Risen Lord on the shore of the lake. Jesus asks him 3 times, 'Simon son of John, do you love me?' Peter humbled by his 3-fold denial of Christ, confirms his love for Jesus and he is renewed and commissioned to take up his leadership role as shepherd.


Our tradition teaches us what Peter and the other disciples were prepared to do for Christ and the spread of the Gospel out of love. Their love was truly tested and ultimately they gave their lives.


On Thursday we celebrated the feast of our Marist confrere, St Peter Chanel. He too was someone whose love for Christ and his people was heroically tested on the island of Futuna.


I wrote 'Loved is prepared' after listening to the story of a married couple and the sacrifices they were prepared to make with regard a very challenging situation they faced. I hope the words speak to you and your experience and renew your commitment to those you share your life with and are called to serve.

Love is prepared


Love is prepared to do great things.

Let others fly and spread their wings

Sacrifice their own desires

That’s what love is prepared to do


Put others first and stand beside as a

tower of strength and a mountain guide

Give tender hearts the time to grow

That’s how love is prepared you know

When hope seems lost and each door is closed

When lives are hurt and their sorrow shows

Love is prepared and compassion flows like a river

Like a river



Love is prepared to be there and more

Face the challenges that life has in store

Never give up or run away

That’s what love is prepared to do


Love understands when the heart’s afraid

And always forgives when mistakes are made

Love will endure when all else will fade

That’s what love is, that’s what love is

When hope seems lost and each door is closed

When lives are hurt and their sorrow shows

Love is prepared and compassion flows like a river


Like a river




Blessings on your week
