Ave Maria!

Fr. Bonaventure preaches on the life and example of Bl. Miguel Pro who died as a martyr during the Mexican Persecution of the early 20th century. At this time Free Masonic forces took over and made the Mass illegal?in that most?Catholic country. Listen to Fr. Bonaventure as he links B. Miguel Pro's life to that of Christ in today's Gospel where His life was sought. Father then links this to our own time.

Ave Maria!

  • Ave Maria says:

    To The Blessed Virgin of Sorrows:

    Let me live my life at your side, my Mother, and be the companion of your bitter solitude and your profound pain. Let my soul feel your eyes’ sad weeping and the abandonment of your heart.

    On the road of my life I do not wish to savor the happiness of Bethlehem, adoring the Child Jesus in your virginal arms. I do not wish to enjoy the amiable presence of Jesus Christ in the humble little house of Nazareth. I do not care to accompany you on your glorious Assumption to the angels’ choir.

    For my life, I covet the jeers and mockery of Calvary; the slow agony of your Son, the contempt, the ignominy, the infamy of His Cross. I wish to stand at your side, most sorrowful Virgin, strengthening my spirit with your tears, consummating my sacrifice with your martyrdom, sustaining my heart with your solitude, loving my God and your God with the immolation of my being.

    Blessed Miguel Pro, S.J.

    Less than two weeks before his death, Blessed Miguel offered to share Our Lady’s Sorrow at Calvary. His prayer was granted. Let us pray to share their sorrow in order to share their eternal joy.
