Triumph of the Immaculate Heart

You who radiate peace, dear Mary,
help us to break this obsession with war
and vanquish the culture of death.

Too many people have died, Blessed Mother,
and no amount of official explanations
and strategic manipulations
can possible justify such suffering.

At this very moment, all over the planet,
dozens of battles are raging,
like bursts of flame exploding
from different zones of a forest on fire.

Whether they take the form of the 
massive bloodshed of entire communities
or single acts of domestic violence,
your Mother-Heart will not tolerate such hatred.

You break yourself open
and offer us the only true antidote
to the poison of global strife:
universal love.

The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart
Mother of God
Similar to Fire
