Ave Maria Meditations

Sanguis Christi, inebria me!

Blood of Christ, inebriate me!

It is the spilled Blood of Christ that through the ages has inebriated souls to the point of martyrdom. One has to be enlivened and beyond one's own possibilities to be a martyr. One has to be, in the mystical and profoundly spiritual sense, quite "drunk" with God. The martyrs were the outstanding inebriates, enlivened and exhilarated beyond their nature, their potential.

Nature claims fiercely to life. The spiritual inebriate runs singing to martyrdom. All the saints of God were inebriated by the Blood of Christ. And if we are to excel our own meager possibilities, we must also be made drunk with that most Precious Blood. It is the Blood of Christ alone that can enliven us to respond with service beyond ourselves, that can achieve the overextension of ourselves without harm and, in fact, with glory...we are enabled to do the impossible when we are inebriated with the blood of Christ.

+Sr. Mary Frances PCC
