Quote 35: Mankind

 

The man, on the last day, shot down in his garden,
Feel extreme fear that death reveals to him;
His heart is a sea that straightens and surgeth,
In poignant throes of almost dead chest.
Everything that was vanity, now is discomfort.
The whole ship of illusion shatters and crumbles
Under the fatal waves of stormy untamed,
Poor heart, which is shipwrecked without port.

How much time in this world, dark and uncertain direction,
Man lives to grope in the darkness that is created!
Around, everything is going on the dark road,
In dread of waiting anxiety that comes close! …
Among the throes of death, breast bloodless and open,
Wretch Wayfaring Man of Grief rebelled to his guide,
Despairs, weeps, longs and babbles
The supreme prayer of pain from his desert.
In this great sorrow, the poor soul, between the rubble,
Feel the Master of Love showing his shoulders
The greatness of the cross that illuminates and succor;
The world is the darkness that buries the chimera
And in the dark Bulcao only Jesus perseveres,
As the immortal light of love that never dies.

Quote 34: Help and go ahead

Extend the fraternal hand to who laughs and who cries:
The palace and the hovel, the nest and the grave,
Everything that vibrates expects the light that shines,
In the eternal law of love which enshrines the creature.
Plant the blessing of peace, as dawn rays,
In the darkness of the thief, in pain perjured soul;
Radiates forgiveness and serves, worldwide,
Where claims the revolt and where there is bitterness.
Now, today and tomorrow, understand, help and go ahead;
Clarifies the joy and comfort disgrace,
Keeps the desire of the good that is fire pilgrim …
Do not change evil for evil, escapes the shade and revenge,
Do not grieve thee before the misery, stow yourself hope.
Be the blessing of love, the light of your destination.

Quote 31: The sensible Arts

The dreams of poets, the visions of mystics, the creations of genius, the proofs and demonstrations of Science, the most perfect achievements of Art are just very weak echoes and tiny perceptions that men with better skills, capture as lightning when matter, dominated by a few moments, it allows the soul to glimpse some pale reflections of the divine world.

Quote 30: Truth

God consoles the humble and gives strength to the afflicted when they ask. His might covers the Earth and in every place, with each tear shed, He places a consoling remedy. Abnegation and resignation are a continuous prayer and contain profound teaching. Human wisdom resides in these two words. S.T.

Quote 26: Dynamic Life

How many lives, how many bodies, how many centuries, how many tasks, how many triumphs, how many deaths are still allotted to us? And yet religious philosophers will speak of final decisions and immutable situations! André Luis
