Listen, my Jesus, I wish to make you a confidence ...
You know me well
and not hidden to you is my overall helplessness.
Well, it is precisely the weakness that leans to the fortitude
helplessness to the power of God ...
in short, it is my own smallness
that makes me happy and makes me live in You!
-- Bl Elia of St Clement, ocd
