Rome, 22 june 1972

With great inner silence we enter in Chiara’s conversation with the One and Triune God.

The Trinity inside me!
The abyss inside me!
Immensity inside me!
The chasm of love inside me!

The Father who Jesus announced
inside me!
The Word!
The Holy Spirit, who I always
want to have in order to serve the Work of Mary,
inside me!

I ask for nothing less.
I want to live in this abyss,
lose myself in this sun,
live together with Eternal Life.

What should I do then? Prune the life outside
and live the one inside.
The more I cut communications
with the external
the more I speak with the Trinity
inside me.

(Diary entry 22 May 1972, cited in Essential Writings, New City Press, New York 2007, p.147)
