Second Series of Poems
Second poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus
I wish that, like You, beloved Lord,
I could understand the Divine Will
with absolute clarity,
as well as all the mysteries
that Your merciful Heart holds
about the infinite existence of this Universe
and of this Creation.
I wish, dear Jesus,
that I could surpass the limits of human consciousness
so that, within me, I might recognize
the inner universe and the spiritual riches
that God placed within each creature.
I wish, Lord,
that I were aware of this whole reality
beyond that which is concrete
so that even my cells
might awaken to the intelligence
and the knowledge that the Universe holds.
I wish, my Lord,
that I could receive this Grace
so that I might offer myself more consciously
as Your redeemed instrument
within the sublime Project of Your Mercy.
I ask You, Divine Jesus,
to empty me of myself
so that there may be a place, within me,
for the humility of Heaven,
which will make me simple and self-given
so that, perceptible to all of
Your Commands and Designs,
I may serve You.
Expand my consciousness
according to that which You have thought of.
I do not wish to flaunt
but rather make it part of this consciousness
that implores You so that it may only
rise to the occasion.
I thank that You listen to me, Jesus,
and that You fulfill
Your Sacred Will within me.
I thank you for keeping the words of this soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
