“All I ask of you is forever to remember me as loving you”
"I request that mention be made both at the wake and at the Mass of the Resurrection of the following two stanzas of The Spiritual Canticle of St. John of the Cross (A: 18-19; B:27-28). These stanzas express in an especially poignant way what Lebh Shomea has meant to me as well as what God has so graciously chosen to do with me, through me and in me there:"
There, [Lebh Shomea] he [Jesus] gave me his heart.
There, my soul surrendered itself
Allí me dio su pecho,
Mi alma se ha empleado
