Translated from the original by Ana Giménez.
“Have mercy, my God,
for the sake of my tears!
See here, before you
heart and eyes weep bitterly.
Have mercy, my God”
(Bach, St Matthew Passion)
Devote some time to the God of Jesus Christ during the quarantine.
Listen to the music several times.
Live the fourth mansion.
Recollect your whole soul, try gradually to remain in silence. Go to your will and tell God you have decided to be with Him.
Allow all the pores of your being bathe in the dialogue between the violin and the singer.
Tell Him about the suffering we are all going through, the dead people, their families, the medical staff and all the people who are helping in silence.
Jesus is approaching you in this silence, and loves you. He loves us. We are in a “trial” period, said Pope Francis yesterday.
You are worthy to be loved. We have Jesus and the Trinity within.
We let ourselves be loved.
In these hard times, everyone shares what he has. Sergio, a musician, sends his friends two or three pieces of music to enjoy and pray. Joaquín, the young man, is just 80 years old and he is lockdown at home, like all of us.
We are building “threads” of relationships which will lay the foundation of our future Church. Hugs to all of you.
