Eighth poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus
Free me, Lord,
of any fear
or pain that I am to face.
May that liberation,
that only You will grant me through Your Grace,
help me learn from suffering
and to not fear it.
Because I know, Lord,
that in everything there is a why,
and You, My Beloved, give us the wisdom
to be able to understand it and accept it,
in the same way that You silently and humbly
accepted it in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Grant me, Lord,
the opportunity of seeing
holy redemption in all places,
and how the powerful Love of Your Heart
transforms all and heals all.
Stay with me, Lord,
in every moment,
at least until I learn
to recognize Your Will
and to fulfill It, step by step.
In the difficult and bitter times, let me be
close to You, only to contemplate You
in the luminous power of Your Holy Eucharist.
Through this offering, Lord,
may I find the strength and much courage,
every day, to set aside
my ideas, likes, and satisfactions.
Surrender me, Lord, at Your Feet
so that my pride,
vanity, and arrogance may kiss them
and all adversity or inner selfishness
be dissolved by the balm of Your Light.
I trust in You, dear Jesus.
You know my weaknesses.
Transform them all,
even though my sacrifice is just
a small grain of sand
in this vast Universe.
I thank you for keeping the words of this soul in your hearts!
Who blesses you,
Your Master, Christ Jesus
