(PICTURES OF A LIFE)

"Ail at once by poetry and through poetry, by and through music, the soûl percelves the splendour beyond the grave".
(Ch. Baudelaire)

1- DESTINY
Martin gives alms to a beggar he meets on his way. The beggar expresses his gladness and gratitude.

2- VOCATION
Martin is dreaming and sees once more his act of charity ; the beggar appears as a divine presence.

3- SERENITY
Full of wisdom, he goes on his way, in order to transmit his serenity to other people.

4- MEDITATION (Salve Regina)
He needs some time for méditation to find out the confirmation of his high-mindedness.

5- DEVOTION
Martin cornes back and, incited by his strong convictions, he devotes himself to the others.

6- LAST BREATH
At the end of his life his forces are failing. He pronounces his last wishes and then his soul goes up.

7- BRIGHTNESS OF A LIFE
During ail his life, Martin was charitable and devoted. May his memory be the reflection of his image.
