Eli Eli lama sabachthani?

elieliPetals decline
But the flower
still smiles,
Plow my heart
gushing blood
Still I smile
With a longing love
Throng my skull
With throny crown
Let me heal you
When I cry:
“Eli Eli lama sabachthani?”

In a cold night

20131114-093124 pm.jpg
Nights are cold,
But my heart still hot
People are brown here
Some are white
But shadows are dark
Look into their eyes
I do not see flesh
Only souls
All glows like the robe
Of my redeemer
The spirit of Lord
Let the mission bear fruit
So the souls may march
To the Kingdom of love

GrandPa and GrandMa – Importants of elder people

GrandPaLove is also expressed in the generous attention shown to the elderly who live in families: their presence can take on great value. They are an example of connections between generations, a resource for the well-being of the family and of the whole of society: “Not only do they show that there are aspects of life — human, cultural, moral and social values — which cannot be judged in terms of economic efficiency, but they can also make an effective contribution in the work-place and in leadership roles. In short, it is not just a question of doing something for older people, but also of accepting them in a realistic way as partners in shared projects — at the level of thought, dialogue and action”. As the Sacred Scripture says: “They still bring forth fruit in old age” (Ps 92:15). The elderly constitute an important school of life, capable of transmitting values and traditions, and of fostering the growth of younger generations, who thus learn to seek not only their own good but also that of others. If the elderly are in situations where they experience suffering and dependence, not only do they need health care services and appropriate assistance, but — and above all — they need to be treated with love.
