And now...

(We tranlate the poem abiding strictly to the main meaning and using the same words that the original document, for the importance of the text.)


And now, 

you, 

Brother in humanity, 

Brother in Christ; 

if you want to act in company of people 

sincere 

but imperfect, 

then come with us. 

If you look for the daily hardships, 

the constant suffering, 

then come with us. 

If you don't fear the failures, 

then come with us. 

If you want to hear the lancinant call  

of the perfidious temptations, 

then come with us. 

If you want to know the doubt, 

sometimes 

the desperation, 

then come with us. 

If you donít want to be always contemplating the stars, 

if you want to look to your feet the miseries of this world, 

then come with us. 

If you want to defend the widow, 

to protect the orphan, 

then come with us. 

If you want to fight for and with the oppressed ones,  

then come with us. 

If you want to abandon your metals in the wardrobe, 

to reject the old human, 

to forget your erudiction, 

your science, 

your initiation, 

your ignorance, 

then come with us. 

If you want that returned to question 

the tomorrow, 

the revelation of the eve, 

then come with us.  

If you want wear the habit of weddings 

that makes you similar to the other ones, 

your brothers, 

no matter who you are 

or where you come from, 

then come with us. 

And if you want to offer until your last cent, 

until your last hour, 

until your last sigh, 

your last look; 

if you want to give everything,  

to abandon everything 

for the humanís service, 

your fellowman, 

serving to the spiritual man, 

the Christ, 

then, 

don't doubt, 

look for us; 

to us, 

the Poor Knights of Christ, 

champions of the lost causes.
