From Ave Maria Meditations

annunciation

You have heard, O Virgin, that you will conceive and bear a son; you have heard that it will not be by man but by the Holy Spirit. The angel awaits an answer; it is time for him to return to God who sent him. We too are waiting, O Lady, for your word of compassion; the sentence of condemnation weighs heavily upon us. (more…)

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Ave Maria!March’s Theme: Suffering

“In all things let us never forget to say with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, ‘not my will, but thine be done’. (Lk. 22:42) And if, as happened in the Garden of Gethsemane, God holds it as opportune not to answer our request and sends us a chalice to drink down to the last drop, let us not forget that Jesus not only suffered, but also gloriously arose, and that we tend toward the resurrection also through suffering.” (SK #1264)

Mar 30 – St. Maximilian – Disinterested Love

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

Ave Maria!March’s Theme: Suffering

“A soul that loves God always desires to please Him, in every moment, with every thought, word and action, in all its works and with its very existence. When it has the opportunity to sacrifice some affection in order to give joy to God, it considers itself fortunate, because it has the possibility of giving proof of disinterested love. It is precisely for this reason that the Saints desired to make so many sacrifices, to endure so many crosses, because in doing so they demonstrated that their love was pure.” (SK #1303)

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Ave Maria!March’s Theme: Suffering

“One’s health and the obligations of one’s state in life do not permit everyone to practice rigorous penances, although everyone acknowledges that the pathway of life is strewn with little crosses.

Mar 28 – St. Maximilian – Penance is a Duty

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Ave Maria!March’s Theme: Suffering

“Penance is not an exclusive privilege of the saints, neither is it an ‘error’ of medieval times, rather it is a duty, a specific duty for everyone, because no one is without sin. And it isn’t as though people began to go astray only during the medieval period, because, right from the first centuries of the Church, Christians, obedient to the commands of Christ, kept their flesh under restraint.” (SK #1028)

The Mercy of God to a Penitent

From Ave Maria Meditations

The Mercy of God to the Penitent

from St. Maximus the Confessor

healing

God’s will is to save us, and nothing pleases him more than our coming back to him with true repen?tance. The heralds of truth and the ministers of divine grace have told us this from the beginning, repeating it in every age. Indeed, God’s desire for our salvation is the primary and preeminent sign of his infinite good?ness. It was precisely in order to show that there is nothing closer to God’s heart that the divine Word of God the Father, with untold condescension, lived among us in the flesh, and did, suffered, and said all that was necessary to reconcile us to God the Father, when we were at enmity with him, and to restore us to the life of blessedness from which we had been exiled.
