Fifth poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus
You expired, my Jesus, on the height of the Cross
and surrendered Your Spirit into the Hands of God.
Today, before Your merciful Presence,
I surrender to You my whole life, my soul and my will,
so that according to Your Principles of Love and Light
You may project into this small life
the sacred treasures of Paradise.
make me always small and similar to You,
as You did with John, the apostle and prophet,
so that I may be able to know the greatnesses
of Your Mercy and of Your Pity.
Empty me completely from within
so that someday I may render myself to Your designs
with total openness and unconditional surrender.
Do not let me fall into temptation, Lord.
Liberate me from harassments,
liberate me from illusions.
Ignite within my soul
the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit.
Because thus I will make You known in the world,
just as You, my Spouse,
have made Yourself known
with all Your celestial mysteries
to my very tiny heart.
Help me, beloved Jesus,
to recognize Your Will
even in the smallest details.
Do not cease to guide me
and bless me in any moment.
Erase from my memory all mistakes
and fears of failure.
May I avail myself, Lord, of Your eternal confidence
so that one day I may be worthy
of witnessing Your Return.
I thank you for keeping the words of this soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
