  • Maria was with newborn Jesus when Joseph dreamed with Gabriel, The Angel, who told him Herod was trying to kill the baby who was the long-waited King of Jews.

    Look, Our Lady, how the stonebreaker takes larger and larger spaces in this yard plenty of gravels! Someone told Mary Shelley quoted that life is obstinate and step in our heels the more we hate it, and this humble plant born in this poor sand and salty floor assures me of it all these months long! It goes on scattering among the gravel in so constant and progressive growth that I had to laugh one day and told my brother that the plant is here exactly to break the gravel. Maybe some day there will be really good ground, then...

    But pretty far before it our landlord decided to ask the house back and there we go to another place, with our gears and our herd of cats, in the most critical moment to have to take such a decision. You know, like you did with Joseph, Jesus and the donkey left Bethlem towards Egypt.

    Today is the day I was warned we must move away.

    Our people have gravel heart, but are stubborn as roots of stonebreakers! At the same time willful as cats and despised as weeds, because we're too proud, if not greedy either.

    Our Lady, Mercy! Jesus your Son was despised to become the Chief Cornerstone of History. Your people is not the best of not the best, but we try hard as our roots fight against the rocks until we are uproot to another floor, another plane, another good time. Gravels in the yard, gravels the front garden with a solitaire pinus tree that don't let any other plant sprout around, but your people will always dare to try to make any place a piece of Eden.

    The Good News have already arrived, anyway, in particular difficult moment, for you at your people time, and for me in my history! After all you know how your Son was born, and the way yourself had the sword of Prophecy trespassing your pure heart to establish the Earth with the right places of everyone...

    We did it all right, and we're thankful for it all! We know your sweet eyes support our cross ever!
