DAILY MESSAGE OF THE GLORIFIED CHRIST JESUS, TRANSMITTED IN THE CITY OF FATIMA, PORTUGAL, TO THE VISIONARY FRIAR ELÍAS DEL SAGRADO CORAZÓN DE JESÚS

Second Series of Poems

Fourth poem of a soul to the Sacred and Blessed Heart of Jesus

 My Lord,
may the Rays of Your Heart
dissolve any possible
spiritual blindness in me,
so that I have the joy
of recognizing Your humble steps.

 Make me brave,
as You were, dear Jesus,
in each step of the Cross.

 That I not fear to carry
my own miseries,
That I not fear not being able to find You. 

 But I know that as You are
kind and merciful, Lord,
You will grant me the Grace of finding You,
of feeling You and of recognizing You
in my inner world. 

 May You be that Divine Flame
inside of us
that transmutes and purifies everything.

 Distance me, Lord,
from the illusions of life,
from everything that is superficial.

 May I never lose the thirst
of drinking of your Blood
and eating of your Divine Body.

 Make me similar to all
Your humble servants and martyrdoms
that gave until the last 
minute of their lives
to witness and recognize You.

 May I not fear the deserts
in which You place me.
