Francis – Francisco

Standard

Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit copy

From the depths of his soul he cries out:
Abba Father,
Lord and Mother of the universe!

From the depths of his soul,
Comes that terrifying moment of surrender,
Of knowing,
Of drowning in poverty,
The end of the road,
The moment of realization,
The soothing light of grace,
Crashing through,
Breaking through,
The deep sigh,
The tears of surrender,
The knowing,
The invitation,
The desperate cry,
The consent to boundless infinite spirals of holiness dancing in the heart,
The universe within and without,
Choirs of angels,
Melodic hymns pulsating and resonating up and down his mortal body.

He raises his hands,
turns to the light,
his gaze is fixed on the eternal,
He is Francis,
He is Jesus,
He is you,
He is I,
He is one with all that is, and ever was, and ever will be…

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.”

Desde lo mas profundo de su alma exclama:
Abba Padre,
Dios y Madre del universo!

Desde lo mas profundo de su alma,
Nace el momento estremecedor de la entrega,
Del saber,
Del ahogarse en pobreza.
El fin del camino,
El momento de realización,
La luz consoladora de la gracia,
Irrumpiendo en su ser,
El sollozo furtivo,
Las lagrimas de entrega,
El saber,
La invitación,
El gemido desesperado,
El consentimiento a espirales infinitos de santidad
Danzando en el corazón;
El universo interior y exterior,
Coros de ángeles,
Himnos melódicos pulsando y resonando por todo su cuerpo mortal.

El levanta las manos,
Se vuelve hacia la Luz,
Sus ojos fijos en lo Eterno,
El es Francisco,
El es Jesús,
El es usted,
El es Yo,
El es uno con todo lo que es, y todo lo que fue, y todo lo que será…

“Bienaventurados los pobres en espíritu
Porque de ellos es el Reino de los Cielos.”
