Lest We Retain
Lest we retain the good in us Lest we retain the gifts in us Because they can’t bear enduring fruits In our own hands, and under our own care. Let’s take them under the protection Of the Source of all good things Under the care Of the Creator of all gifts. For He alone can take care best He alone can fructify and multiply best He alone can polish them He alone can make them shine in a loving way. Let’s say: Take under your protection. Let’s say: Suscipe!
