Invocations of mercy

These poems were read at the 18 May meeting in Alfonsine. Written by Maria Babini, she went to the Father’s house in April 2017. She often said that her little feet had never worn shoes, but how much “they had walked”! Last year, reflecting on the “labor of humanity”, he invoked the Mercy:


“COME with the party dress,
bring a brazier with you,
in which with red hot stone
annihilates the tumors of the earth;
come barefoot and on the sands
that are our uncertainties,
challenge and brighten hearts with trees, flowers …
and place us in a thick wood,
ventilated, rich in fruit,
food for the exhausted soul,
come with sounds
as delicate as they are powerful,
because our ears
they need you,
to counteract deafness
and sadness.
Come with the party dress!
(Maria Babini, Alfonsine, 13-01-2016)

Another invocation, which Maria made on the occasion of a shipwreck of African boys:
“LORD come,
the sea that was the basin of the most important and ancient civilization,
this same sea is
become red of innocent dead.
Lord, come,
this mortal sin
it has extended to all latitudes!
Lord come,
to understand the echo, and counts, in our place,
like beads of rosary, responsibilities,
amplify the possibility of our hearts,
correct the capacities of our minds
and accept this cry
why it is possible to save us,
despite the indifference
and total plagiarism.
LORD, come! “(Maria Babini, Alfonsine, January 31st 2016)
