This powerful prayer gives us supreme hope in these times.
June 9, 1914
O LORD, I am before Thee as an offering ablaze with the burning fire of divine union… And that which is thus before Thee, is all the stones of this house and all that it contains, all those who cross its threshold and all those who see it, all those who are connected with it in one way or another and by close degrees the whole earth.
From this centre, this burning nucleus which is and will be more and more penetrated with Thy light and love, Thy forces will radiate over the whole earth, visibly and invisibly, in the hearts of men and in their thoughts.
Such is the certitude Thou givest me in reply to my aspiration for Thee.
An immense wave of love descends upon everything and penetrates all.
Peace, peace on all earth, victory, plenitude, marvel.
O beloved children, sorrowful and ignorant, and thou, O rebellious and violent Nature, open your hearts, tranquillise your force, it is the omnipotence of Love that is coming to you, it is the pure radiance of the light that is penetrating you. This human, this earthly hour is the most beautiful among all the hours. Let each, let all know it and enjoy the plenitude that is accorded.
O saddened hearts and anxious foreheads, foolish obscurity and ignorant ill-will, let your anguish be calmed and effaced.
This is the splendour of the new word that comes:
“I am here”.
