“Do not weep”
“Woman, do not weep!” What an unimaginable thing it is that God—“God” he who is making the whole world at this moment—seeing and listening to man, could say, “Man, do not weep!” “You, do not weep!” “Do not weep, because I did not make you for death, but for life. I put you in the world and placed you in a great company of people!” Man, woman, boy, girl, you, all of you, do not weep! Do not weep! There is a gaze and a heart that penetrates to your very marrow and loves you all the way to your destiny, a gaze and a heart that no one can deflect from his course, no one can render incapable of saying what he thinks and what he feels, no one can render powerless!
“Goloria Dei vivens homo.” The glory of God, the greatness of him who makes the stars in the sky, who puts into the sea, drop by drop, all the blue that defines it, is man who lives. There is nothing that can suspend that immediate rush of love, of attachment, of esteem, of hope, because he became hope for each one who saw him, who heard him; “Woman, do not weep!” There is nothing that can block the certainty of a destiny that is mysterious and good!…“Gloria Dei vivens homo.” We want this and nothing but this, that the glory of God be manifested to all the world and touch all the spheres of earth: the leaves, all the leaves of the flowers and all the hearts of men. We have never seen each other, but this is what we see among us, what we feel among us.
