The Spanish are a passionate people--
just look at their poets, their dancers
their music, and above all at their saints.
And no people love the Passion of Jesus
like the Spaniards. Their songs and poems
to the Crucified are like love songs,
so full of longing and the agony of never
being able to love God enough.
Listen to this video, La Saeta Serrat,
and meditate on the words of the poem
by Antonio Machado set to music
and with visuals.
