Third Series of Poems
Ninth poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus
Lord Jesus Christ,
when anguish comes,
may I not fear my own purification
nor that of my fellow beings.
May the glorious flame of Your Love
fill us completely
so that we have the inner strength
to surpass ourselves.
Lord Jesus, teach us to live
in the same way You lived
the Eternal Father in each moment.
May we be able to be ambassadors of Your Legacy.
May we be able to represent You on Earth
just as You deserve, so that
we cease to disappoint Your Heart
and fill It with bliss and joy
through fulfilling, step by step,
Make our hearts brave,
willing to suffer for You,
so that in this way, we may be able to repopulate the Earth
with new values of brotherhood
May each test You send us, Lord,
help us confirm our fortitude in You.
We ask You, dear Jesus,
to make us like You in humility,
true in charity, and peaceful
in the face of the attacks of life.
May we not fear to humiliate ourselves before You, Lord,
as many times as You need it,
because some day we hope to be nothing
and in this nothing to be merged in God forever.
I thank you for keeping the words of this soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
