Saturday of the Twenty-sixth week in Ordinary Time
".... you have revealed them to the childlike"
Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus (1873-1897), Carmelite, Doctor of the Church
Poem « Jesus, my beloved, remember ! » ; v. 15, 23, 27-28
"Although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike"
Remember that on seeing the countryside,
Your Divine Heart anticipated harvests (Jn 4,35).
Raising your eyes to the holy mountains
You whispered the names of your elect.
So that your harvest may soon be gathered in,
Each day, O my God, I sacrifice myself and I pray
That my joys and my tears
Are for your Harvesters,
Remember that a Condemned Man,
Overwhelmed with suffering, turning to Heaven,
Cried out, "Soon You will see me
Appear glorious in power" (Mk 14,62).
No one wanted to believe that He was the Son of God, (Mt 27,40f.)
For his ineffable glory was hidden...
O Prince of Peace, (Is 9,5)
As for me, I recognize you,
I believe in you!...
Remember that on the day of your victory
You told us, "He who has not seen
The Son of God all radiant with glory
Is blessed if still he has believed!" (Jn 20,29)
In the shadow of Faith, I love you and adore you.
O Jesus! I'm waiting in peace for the dawn to see you.
I don't desire
To see you here below,
Remember that in ascending to the Father
You could not leave us orphans;
And in making yourself a prisoner on earth,
You knew to veil all your divine rays.
But the shadow of your veil is luminous and pure.
Living Bread of faith, Celestial Food, (Jn 6,35)
O mystery of love!
My daily Bread,
Jesus, is You!
