A Prayer for Freedom

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Ave Maria Meditations

O God, our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.

Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”  We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Life in Abundance

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Ave Maria Meditations

As we end the month dedicated to the Precious Body and Blood of Christ, here is a Eucharistic Meditation from Ven. Conception Cabrera de Armida (Conchita):

Jesus speaks: “I am the Life”: supernatural, Divine, celestial life, the life of grace, true life as compared to earthly life that is but a shadow. I have remained in the Eucharist to give you this Life, that is, to give you Myself, Who am Life, because I want to live in you, in your facul­ties, your soul, the senses of your body, in each drop of your blood. 

Stroke by stroke I want to imprint in your being my humility, zeal, obedience, abnegation, simplicity, patience, and love of the cross. “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.” And what better way to communicate it than through Holy Communion? Therefore, drink, fill yourself with him who is life.  (more…)
