The smile of the heart: prayer of December 19, 2022

When you meet a smile from the heart, your heart leaps.

When the smile in front of you is made with the heart, you realize it, you feel it on your skin.

And when your heart smiles, your whole body smiles, including your lips.

And your heart smiles when you're at peace, with the world and especially with yourself.

E non serve tanto per sorridere, per essere nella pace, per essere nell’armonia, per avere love.

Just love and be loved.

È importante custodire le radici, nella vita come nella fede. San Paolo ricorda il fondamento nel quale radicare la vita per restare saldi: dice di rimanere «radicati in Jesus Christ» (Col 2,7). Ecco che cosa ci ricorda l’albero di #Christmas: rimanere radicati in Jesus.

Let's pray together:

Come Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit,
send to us from heaven
a ray of your light.

You come,fatherof the poor,
Come; gift giver,
come, light of hearts.

perfect comforter,
sweet guest of the soul,
sweet relief.

In fatigue, rest,
in the heat, shelter,
in tears, comfort.

O most blessed light,
invade inside
the hearts of your faithful.

Without your strength,
nothing is in man,
nothing without fault.

Wash what is sordid,
wet what is dry,
heal what bleeds.

Bend what is rigid,
warm what is cold,
straighten out what is astray.

Donate to your faithful
who trust only in you
your holy gifts.

Give virtue and reward,
give holy death,
gives eternal joy. Amen.

Apostolic Creed

I believe in God, Father onnipotente,
Creator of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ,
Suo unico Figlio, nostro Gentleman,
who was conceived of the Holy Spirit
was born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified,
died and was buried; he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose from the dead;
ascended to heaven, sits on the right
di God Father onnipotente:
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
la santa Church cattolica,
the communion of saints,
the remission of sins,
the resurrection of the flesh,
eternal life.

Pater, Ave, Gloria

Virgin of the Annunciation, make us, we pray, blessed in hope,
teach us vigilance of the heart,
donaci l’love premuroso della sposa,
the perseverance of waiting,
la fortezza della croce.

Expand our spirit
why in trepidation
of the final meeting
we find the courage to give up
to our small horizons
to anticipate, in us and in others,
la tenera e intima familiarità di God. Ottienici, Madre, la gioia di gridare
with all our life:
“Vieni, Signore Jesus, vieni, Signore
that you have risen,
come on your day without sunset
to finally and forever show us your face".

Carlo Maria Martini
