November 8th: Blessed John Duns Scotus

Ave Maria Meditations

Heavenly Father, You filled John Duns Scotus with wisdom, and through his life and teaching gave us a witness of Your Incarnate love. May we come to understand more deeply what he taught so that we may live in ever growing charity.  

Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed John Duns Scotus:

O Most High, Almightily and gracious Lord, Who exalts the humble and confounds the proud of heart, grant us the great joy of seeing Blessed John Duns Scotus canonized. He honored Your Son with the most sublime praises; he was the first to successfully defend the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary; he lived in heroic obedience to the Holy Father, to the Church and to the Seraphic Order. O most holy Father, God of infinite love, hear, we beseech You, our humble prayer, thorough the merits of Your Only-Begotten Son and His Mother, the Gate of Heaven and Spouse of the Holy Spirit.

    I really did his philosophical stance. He said we can have DIRECT CONTACT with God, which differed from St. Thomas Aquinas who said we can only have mediated contact with God. Scotus is much more Biblical. Starting with “I am Who AM.” as his premise, Scotus concludes that God is Being, and our being contacts Him: Being to being. This has been wondrous for me in gaining a sense of God immanent in Nature, and Transcendent of Time and Space, and of Jesus sacramentally present in the consecrated Bread and Wine. I think Scotist philosophy is the parent of all Personalist philosophies.
