that the Lord may communicate
this pearl of contemplation to us.

so that we will reach what is necessary.

that are necessary for arriving
at this point

we cannot be careless
in either small things or great.

to give us his grace in such a way

through our own fault;
That he will show us the way
and will so strengthen the soul
that it will dig until it finds the hidden treasure.
The truth is that the treasure
lives within our very selves.
