TO ENTER INTO YOUR PASSOVER


We must pass from our hideaways to the public square,

from silence to denunciation,

from fear to valour,

from lies to truth,

from safety to insecurity,

from sleep to watchfulness,

from stupidity to wisdom,

from a closed heart to an open mind,

from petitions to praise,

from laws to the Gospel...

 

We must pass from our world to the village opposite,

from indifference to dedication,

from cowardess to courage,

from hate to forgiveness,

from sadness to joy,

from rancour to reconciliation,

from noise to silence,

from a wandering life to a settled life,

from possession to sharing,

from slavery to liberty...

 

We must leave our dominions for the reverse of history,

from a hectic life to peace,

from injustice to justice,

from indifference to active enquiry,

from egoism to love,

from power to service,

from darkness to light,

from fear to joy,

from surprise to a committed following,

from discouragement to hope...

 

We must pass from our world to the solace of your breast,

from our loneliness to your company...

We must get rid of our bad habits

to prepare your passover

to pass from death to life,

 

 

AS IT IS THE HOUR OF A NEW LIFE!

PROCLAMATION FOR HOLY WEEK

 

It is the time to enter the night without fear,

to cross cities and towns,

to burn our old possessions and buy new wine,

to stay in the heart of the world,

to create in the midst of darkness and thunder,

It is the hour of a new life!

 

It is the time to get up from sleep,

to go out onto the balcony of life,

to look at both the corners and the horizon,

to lean out over the infinite even though it gives us vertigo,

to announce, sing and proclaim,

it is the h our of a new life!

 

It is the time to break with our usual schemes,

to listen to the words of silence,

to close our eyes to see better,

to enjoy your silent presence,

to wander through the deserts,

it is the hour of a new life!

 

It is the time to wake up at dawn,

to discover your presence amongst us,

to start walking new paths,

to trek with confidence

to cross to the other bank,

It is the hour of a new life!

 

It is the time to acknowledge life,

to talk few words but live a lot,

to risk every thing placing all our bets on Him,

of sitting down at table and warming our hearts,

of hoping against all hope,

It is the hour of a new life!

 

It is the time for the passage of God in our world

washing the feet and the most intimate wounds,

drawing near to our miseries and infusing hope,

raising lives that have fallen or been knocked over,

filling our empty saddlebags with new seeds,

It is the hour of a new life!
