Sixth poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus
may there be no time,
moment or preference
for me to want to look for You.
May I not exchange You, Lord, for anything or anyone.
I also ask You for this Grace,
because I know that You, beloved Lord,
know my weaknesses and uncertainties.
Fill me, Jesus,
with the most pure Source of Your truth and of Your transparency
so that some day I may learn to be so similar to You
in word, action and feeling.
Tear out from within me everything that may offend You
and, although it may hurt within,
do what You have to do, Lord,
and do not delay.
Take Your time
to project within me
Your most sacred designs.
Help me in the hours of great inner tempest.
Enlighten me in the moments of great tribulation.
Because I know, dear Jesus,
that in everything You are present
and that You will never abandon us,
in both the hardest moments of the desert
and the coldest tests of the inner winter.
Ignite in my chest, beloved Jesus,
the sacred flame of Your invincible Love
so that in the hour of the great inner battle
I may have absolute and full confidence
that You, Lord, will win.
Participate more and more
in this imperfect life.
Show me with clarity
and without self-illusions
what it is that I still have to change.
May I not drown within my own indifference.
On the contrary, Lord,
make me worthy of the atonement of Your Grace
so that I may transform everything
according to Your projects.
I thank you for keeping the words of this soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
