Maundy Thursday 2024: Loving to the Extreme

March 27, 2024

LOVING TO THE EXTREME Maite López

Leave me, Lord,
take a good look inside,
enter your heart
and let myself be seduced
and increase my desires
of wanting to be like you,
know yourself internally,
love you and follow you more,
to bet my life with you.

Let me see you, Lord,
loving to the extreme,
leaving your skin,
delivering the entrails,
your woman’s entrails,
in a towel and a basin,
in a caressing of the feet,
in a look at us all the way to the bottom
with nothing to reproach
and with nothing to ask for
and with so much to give.

I, the Master and the Lord,
I cannot love you anymore;
for as the Father has loved me,
so have I loved you.
I leave you my whole life in this wine and bread,
this bread that is myself
I’m laughing and I’m giving myself away.
My wish is that you love each other from the heart.

I want to see you too
loving to the extreme,
leaving your skin,
delivering the entrails
as a woman does,
in a towel and a basin,
in a caressing of the feet,
in a look at you all the way down
with nothing to reproach,
and with nothing to ask for
and with so much to give.

Yes, I give you all that I am
to keep you loving
the struggle for justice.
Enter this privacy
that is filled with people and faces to caress,
that drives me from within to become more committed.
They all fit in your heart.

I want to follow you, Lord,
loving to the extreme,
leaving my skin,
delivering the entrails,
my woman’s entrails,
in a towel and a basin,
in a caressing of the feet,
in a look at them all the way to the bottom
with nothing to reproach
and with nothing to ask for
and with so much to give.

And with nothing to ask for; and with so much to give.
And with nothing to ask for; and with so much to give…

TO PRAY:

  1. Let me, Lord, get to know you internally… May this be my petition today, Jesus. Let me look at you to know you, so that your image is engraved inside me, so that I love you and follow you more closely, better.
  2. Let me see you leaving your skin, giving your entrails
  3. I, the Master and the Lord, can no longer love you….
  4. My wish is that you love each other with all your hearts….
  5. I want to follow you, Lord, loving to the end

Listen to Maite López’s song. Which request best expresses your heart’s desire? Stand there, watch Jesus at the Last Supper, breaking bread or washing feet. Look at him at your feet, with nothing to ask and so much to give. Let Him save you.
