The Lemon Tree of the Lord 2020
Long time ago a Poet named Andrés Eloy complained about the greed that a noble tree destroyed. And in the corner of Miracielos he knew how to exclaim in pain: What greedy hand would cut off the lemon tree of the Lord…
And he placed us in the story of a Miracle of Love,
of the blessed Nazarene
when he went out in procession,
in a city full of fear.
Today the prayer returns
When we watch on TV
the health emergency
that the Covid unleashed us.
The virus has no cure,
only prevention it has,
and the doors were shut down,
with clear submission were closed.
And we returned in Lent
to see the face of God
in those who risked their health
for giving attention and care.
Let us ask the Nazarene
for healing the whole world;
so that everyone is protected
against this tiny aggressor.
That we learn to take care of ourselves,
without the need for Doctor,
for the good life is only achieved
if we learn how to Love.
At the time we open our houses,
when the occasion arrives,
let us build a better world
as He taught us,
in mutual care, prayer and fraternal love.
May solidarity and forgiveness flourish
in every corner of the world,
as in the corner of Miracielos,
the lemon tree of the Lord…!
