About My Father


"Pater Noster, qui es in caelis:

sanctificetur nomen tuum: adveniat regnun tuum:
fiat voluntas tua sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie:
et dimmite nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentantionem.
Sed libera nos a malo.


Amen."

God reminds me of my father, for more than a father, it was him who taught me a little bit of the language that seems more likely to be the language God speaks (Although I know God doesn't speak languages... He is the Verb and every verb is part of Him, no matter in what language our hearts speak).

It was also my father who showed me the beauty of Creation, the tenderness of the cultivated fields, the virtue of kindness and so many other magnificent things we have inherited from God.

My father seems like God, because he hides himself regardless of his infinite love, because he acts on my behalf without ruling, without worrying if the good things that happen are going to be his merit or if his children will simply think they are lucky.

I have no luck. I have the sword of good will in my right hand and the shield of justice in front of me.
I have no luck. I have a Father that for so much love gave me another father, so I could get closer to the essence of God and so we could talk promptly and with more substance.

May God allow me to keep this divine connection for many years and that I can have the happiness of sharing with my siblings the fascination it is to have a father that is so much similar to God in his wisdom, patience, selflessness and love.

Amen.

Vanessa Emmanuelle.


This text was written in 2007 and translated now in 2010, so I could share the divine experience I have with my Father with more people. I hope the translation is good enough...
