Fioretti : Véronique

O Lord, you visited me

You required all from me

And I gave you all.

I used to love reading

 And now my eyes are blind…

I used to love running in the woods

And now my legs are numb and stiff for ever…

I used to love gathering flowers in the sunny Spring

But I no longer have hands…

There are many deeply handicapped persons whom we met in our life and who, as Saint-Paul says  ” are completing what is missing from Christ’s sufferings with their own bodies”.

Let’s never forget this : HE is THE HEAD, and WE are THE BODY.
