THE NEW INWARD WINE

It is useless looking at things on the outside.

Things are real on the inside only.
(António Aleixo)
It is within yourself that you can hear the whispering of the Spirit, that you can welcome the light that reveals to you who you are, with the name given to you by God when you were created...

Enter into the intimacy of your heart and allow God to find you there …

In the intimacy that makes you be yourself, in the truth of the dream that God has for you…

In the fount of life that enlightens your outlook in order to realize how precious you are to your God.



R/ Deixa Deus entrar na tua própria casa. / Deixa-te tocar pela sua graça!

Dentro em segredo, reza-Lhe sem medo: / Senhor, Senhor, que queres que eu faça?
Accept the gift of grace that renders your actions and your steps fruitfully…

God, who moulds you at every moment…”The Lord wants you to rely on Him alone(L. 165.2)


The relationship with yourself takes place only in this enlightened space of serenity, in the embrace of peace with which the Father surrounds you as “a most beloved daughter”.
Remain in silence before God the creator, and allow yourself to be loved by Him…

Find yourself within yourself, without tension and division:

Take account of the essence of yourself, where you are, what God means to you…

This is the privileged place of the relationship with yourself…and with your Lord.

Enter barefooted, slowly slowly, in the sacred place of your intimacy.

Allow God to touch you, allow him to transform your heart into His heart, so that He can love you and give you the desire to make a gift of your life.
(Light background music, which gradually ends in silence…)

After this meeting with one’s intimacy, let us thank our Creator for sharing His life with us. The perfection that we long for will never be a “sign” of our life: “we are not there yet, but we are on our way…” (Emmanuel Mounier)

Only God IS! Only in Him can we learn to be, “until we reach our maturity in Christ!”

Only in His light we will be light to the world…With His grace we will be able, like Paula, to “look after the light of the sanctuary”, with our intimate light, a sign of His presence.


Each Sister takes a little lamp and remains in prayer…
Let us pray Psalm 138, in Paula’s constant attitude:”How good is our good God” (Letter 566,4).
Senhor, Tu olhas-me e lês no meu olhar

o que guardo na tenda do meu coração;

cada meu gesto Te é familiar porque me criaste e continuamente me recrias

na liberdade do meu interior.
És a minha força no trabalho e no meu tempo livre;

conheces os meus pensamentos e desejos,

as palavras que digo e todos os projectos que encerram.

A tua presença sempre me acompanha:

esta certeza fascina-me e conduz-me! O que seria eu sem ti?

Que esperanças não passariam de miragens, sem a tua luz?
Todo o meu ser é um dom maravilhoso

criado pela tua mão, cinzelado com arte e amor,

nas entranhas do seio da minha mãe.

Como Te agradeço, Senhor, a beleza que partilhaste comigo

fazendo de mim um raio da tua beleza!

Tu conhecias os meus sonhos e os meus medos

ainda antes que eu os experimentasse;

todos os acontecimentos da minha existência

Te eram familiares mesmo antes que eu os vivesse…

Como encheste a minha vida de dons e de graças!
Tenho vontade de os ir contando a todos, mas seria uma história muito longa:

inumeráveis pequenos sinais que sempre me projectam

para o grande e único Dom que és Tu, Senhor!

Concede-me a tua luz para me conhecer no íntimo do meu coração.

Faz-me ir discernindo se as minhas escolhas são justas

e conduz-me pela mão, cada dia,

pelos caminhos que me levam à Vida verdadeira. Amen. (adapt. Sergio Carrarini)
Cultivate in your heart silence and peace. Surround yourself with the serenity of sunset and with the hope of sunrise. Be present to yourself, be happy for all you have received, accept what is defective in you. Be free and happy. Be grateful and serene.

In this attitude, you can make a feast of your life, of that of others, of the whole world. God will be pleased with you: with the life celebrated in hope and joy, that He wishes to share with you.


Prepare the banquet table, with love; the banquet of life, with generosity; receive those that arrive warmly; share all you are and all you have with everyone. You reflect the richness of your heart!...Be in relationship with all you do during the day!...It depends on you and on how joyfully you live your life, with your capacities and limitations, in the certainty of constructing , gradually, the perfection of your first day of Love in the eternal light!
Cântico final:
1. No mais fundo do meu ser, / vais cantando Tu: Eu sou. / E tentando responder, / Eu vou-Te seguindo, vou…

E na força da canção, / vou abrindo o coração…



R/ Tu vais sendo corpo em mim, / eu vou renascendo em Ti. /Tu és raiz de mim, / em ti Eu sou. Em ti!
2. Vem Tu receber, Senhor, / a oferta do meu ser: / e o dom de Ti em mim / mantém novo meu viver.

E neste cantar profundo, /Tu vais transformando o mundo… R/




ENTER INTO THE SECRET OF YOUR HEART…

GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR LIGHT!
