What Do I Desire, My Jesus?

que quieromi jesus largo 

In her Letter to the Three Kings on January 6, 2016, Sr. Clare wrote: “There’s a song titled, ‘¿Qué quiero mi Jesús?’ [What Do I Want, My Jesus?]. I would like to live what the song says. Can you grant me this, or do I have to speak directly with Jesus Christ and His Mother?" These are the lyrics from that song. It is a poem by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, a Spanish priest and writer from the 17th century. May Our Lord grant us the grace to live what the lyrics of the song ask for.

What Do I Desire, My Jesus?

(Poem by Pedro Calderón de la Barca)

What do I desire, my Jesus? I want to love you.
With all that is in me, I want give myself to you,
With no other joy than pleasing you,
With no other fear than offending you.

I want to forget everything and recognize you,
I want to leave everything behind to search for you,
I want to lose everything in order to find you,
I want to not know anything in order to know you.

I want, dear Jesus, to go deep into your sweet wound,
And be consumed in your divine flames,
And be consumed in your divine flames.

In the end, I desire to be transformed in you,
Die to myself to live your life.
Lose myself in you, Jesus, and not find myself again,
Lose myself in you, Jesus, and not find myself again.

With no other joy than pleasing you,
With no other fear than offending you.
With no other joy than pleasing you,
With no other fear than offending you.

What do I desire, my Jesus?
I desire to love you!
