Our Sorrowful Mother

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Ave Maria Meditations

The martyrdom of the Virgin is set forth both in the prophecy of Simeon and in the actual story of our Lord’s passion. The holy old man said of the infant Jesus: He has been established as a sign which will be contradicted. He went on to say to Mary: And your own heart will be pierced by a sword.

Truly, O blessed Mother, a sword has pierced your heart (more…)

How Much it Cost You to have Loved Me

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Ave Maria Meditations

 “How much it cost You to have loved me.” 

Only love can explain why God chose to seek us out in our misery.

+St. Alphonsus Liguori

 We had sinned, and our sins had alienated us from God, and exiled us from the joys of Heaven. Yet God, compelled by his own unspeakable goodness, chose to stoop down to us and share the poverty and misery that we had merited. He stripped himself of his glory and majesty, hiding all the outward signs of his Divinity, and took on a body like ours, capable of suffering and death. Moreover, He chose to live in the most humble and poor conditions: being born in a manger, then living as refugee wandering in the desert, and as a persecuted foreigner in far off Egypt, and laying his life down, finally, on the wood of the Cross to die. The human mind cannot comprehend this abyss of supernatural love, and only with the light of faith can we begin to penetrate into it.

Fr. Gabriele M. Pellettieri, FI

Ave Maria!

April Burke gives her inspiring testimony of how life is worth living even when you have disabilities. Being born so premature (four and half months) that she could have been aborted with the excuse that she is not “viable”. The only problem she actually had was blindness. Yet she embraces life and confronts her disadvantages with courage, a real zeal for life and a wonderful sense of humor.
