And so, whether I am in the tram or office, or on the road, I am in your circuit oh Holy Trinity: You carry me in Yourself and I carry You in me, and upon going on towards physical death, I grow in You, climbing up the valleys of the mystical ascent. So this very boring, dull and sad thing that is life, in my old age becomes a youthful liberation, a flutter of wings to leap into eternity amid Your sun, oh increate Trinity, next to Mary and the saints, Paul, Augustine, Francis, Clair, Catherine and Theresa… toward this triumph of souls who will not die.
