My beloved children, Joseph and Mary,
Names that represent many,
Many, too many lives
That lack of what is most esteemed.
I don’t know you in person,
And you are far from me,
But never doubt, not even for a moment,
That you already dwell in my heart.
Do you know who am I?
I will tell you:
I am your grandma Maritere
That would like to live with you.
Since I’ve learned about you
You have entered into my heart,
And, without realizing it, you are already a part
Of this interior space of mine.
I already call you my grandchildren
And I’m sure that my embrace,
My kisses and caresses
Were noticed in your hearts.
I’ve always loved the children,
I’ve always felt happy among them,
And always the most vulnerable
Have been my favorite.
My beloved grandchildren,
I would like to give you something important:
Love, joy, tenderness and happiness
That flow abundantly from my heart.
I pray for you,
I touch you with tender care
And every time I see a child
You resound like an echo in my heart.
From my soul I would like to cover you,
Wipe away your tears, cloth you in love,
Hear your cries and lessen your pain,
Put on your feet the shoes of hope and courage.
The grandmothers for their grandchildren
Use to have many stories.
Attention! Your grandma Maritere
Every day is connected with your heart.
When I talk to you from my soul
And to all the children whom I contemplate,
I feel something indescribable in me, that overwhelms me,
Silences me and fills with awe.
For me, at this moment, you are important
And I gave you your family name:
Joseph and Mary of Child Jesus
And I left you in his heart.
Be strong, my beloved,
You are not alone,
If God moves hearts,
Very soon you will be free.
God the Father
guides you by his hand:
Don’t let it go
And soon you will see the end.
When you are calling your mommy,
Maybe she won’t hear you
But our Mother Mary
Will embrace all of you.
It may seem like a lie
That I can love what I don’t know
I assure you, my grandchildren
That I have just experienced it happening.
I also would like
To give you thanks:
You have moved my heart
And in this field it won’t turn back.
Remember, my children
That with the Wi-Fi of the soul
We will stay in touch
Always, with love and peace.
Your grandmother Maritere
