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
or that of my fellow beings.
May the glorious flame of Your Love
fill us completely
so that we have the inner strength
to overcome ourselves.
Lord Jesus, teach us to live
in the same way that You lived
the Eternal Father in each moment.
That we be able to be ambassadors of Your Legacy.
That we be able to represent You on Earth
just as You deserve it, so that
we may cease to disappoint Your Heart
and we may fill It with bliss and joy
Your Designs, step by step.
Make our hearts brave,
willing to suffer for You,
and thus that we be able to repopulate the Earth
with new values of brotherhood
May each test that You send us, Lord,
help us to confirm our fortitude within 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 merge ourselves into God forever.
I thank you for keeping the words of this Soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
