ARDENT LOVER

 

Remaining in the all-penetrating Eye

Or taking flight from Omniscient Might?! -

(swirl of toil laborious... fruitless... external

parting company from glimpse eternal?!)

 

Bearing the all-permeating Glance,

Gazing at Might - the Blazing Heart

Ardently gazing at worldlings' culpable plight

(Or breaking away from victorious sway -

Bracingly magical, vertical flight?!)

 

Is not the path to splendor of saintliness

Paved by instants spent in Omniscient Mightiness?

Enduring the all-permeating Gaze?

Bearing Light Radiant, not trackless, impassable maze?

 

Is not He Gift Supreme and Reward?

Is not Sacrificial Lamb His Name?

Can sacrificial spirit take notice of itself?

Take the line of least resistance?

Reward for service and solemn assistance?

 

Mighty is He whose renown is Love

Encountered more in relinquishing all...

Than taking delivery of all...

Dying to self for Love undying

To be Love's undying possession

Inherit all in the Undying Possessor...

Taking off glove...

To touch the Wing of resplendent Dove...

........................................................................................

"God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God,

and God abides in him" (1 Jn 4:16).

 

"In the end, even the 'yes' to love is a source of suffering, because love always requires expropriations of my 'I', in which I allow myself to be pruned and wounded. Love simply cannot exist without this painful renunciation of myself, for otherwise it becomes pure selfishness and thereby ceases to be love."

- The Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI -
