In the Future

"No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying,`Know the Lord,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest." Paul (Hebrews, 8:11)

When humankind eventually engraves upon his own soul

The luminous sections of the Divine Law

Individuals will not reproach one other

A brother will not denounce a brother.

Prisons will close their doors,

Tribunals of justice will remain in silence.

Cannons will be converted into ploughs,

Armed soldiers will revert to tilling the soil.

Hatred will be expelled from the world

Bayonets will be put to rest

Machines will not hurl flames to ignite fires and death,

But rather, they will peacefully look after the progress of the planet.

Justice shall be overtaken by love.

The offspring of faith will not only be just

But also good, and profoundly so.

Prayer will be of happiness and praise,

And the houses of worship will be consecrated to the sublime work of supreme fraternity.

The preaching of the Law,

Will live in the deeds and thoughts of all

Because the Lamb of God

Will have transformed the hearts of every individual

Into a temple of eternal light,

Wherein His Divine Kingdom

Will forever shine.
