Second Series of Poems
First poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus
sometimes it is difficult to remain
here, in this world,
amidst so many tests and temptations.
I feel that I will not manage to reach You
because my own miseries
make me suddenly sink.
From all of this, save me, Lord,
I do not want to offend Your Heart
with all of that which sometimes
seems to have a life of its own within me.
Submerge me, Lord,
into the ocean of Your Mercy
because I know that thus You will purify me
of all my martyrdoms and condemnations
as many times as necessary.
Make disappear, dear Jesus,
this executioner that dwells within me,
that judges me, that frightens me
and that puts me in a place with no way out.
Help me, Jesus,
to be that which You so much hope for.
May I always be able to feel
thirst for You and for Your Presence
so that, someday, my entire being
may learn to become Your spouse.
empty me of my human condition,
clean my inferior consciousness of so many shortcomings
and finally, Lord, place Your Peace
where I still do not manage to have it.
Because after all this inner struggle,
I know that You will triumph and make me worthy
of being able to be close to You forever,
serving You for all eternity.
I thank you for keeping the words of this soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
