Welcome to you, Lord! The fruits of the earth are offered to those who opened the hands willingly. You come, make yourself a personal gift and become a cross for me, how I am wretched, Lord! I am capable of suffering when you come, I am able to feel the weigh of your burden. And holiness is to receive you. You that descended because I did not make the effort to climb. May my life kneel: then, on the bare ground I will understand the mystery of the gift made to my land.
