This is My Beloved Son

Ave Maria Meditations

And behold a voice from heaven saying: This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (Mt.3:17)


The prophecies of the Old Testament are fulfilled in the New Testament:

(Is.42:1) Behold, my servant, whom I uphold; my chosen, in whom my soul delights.

God the Father: (Mt. 17:5) from the cloud there came a voice which said, “This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.”  

The Mother of Jesus: (Jn.2:5)  His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you’.

(Gen.22:8) And Abraham said, My son,God will provide himself a lamb.

(John 1:35-36)  The next day again John…beholding Jesus walking, he said: Behold the Lamb of God.



(Ex.13:21) And the LORD went before them…by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light…

John the Baptist: (Mt. 3:11) He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

(Is.49:1-3) Listen…you peoples: Yahweh has called me from the womb…he made mention of my name:  and he has made my mouth like a sharp sword…and he said to me, You are my servant; Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

(Lk. 1:31)  You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus.

(Mt.1:21) She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.

(Heb.4:12) For the word of God is living and effectual and more piercing than any two edged sword.

(Is.42:7) That thou mightest open the eyes of the blind.

(Lk.7:20-22) And when the men were come unto him, they said: John the Baptist hath sent us to thee, saying: Art thou he who is to come? Or look we for another? And in that same hour, he cured many of their diseases and hurts and evil spirits: and to many that were blind he gave sight.) And answering, he said to them: Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen: the blind see…

(Mt.12:22) Then was offered to him one posessed with a devil, blind and dumb: and he healed him, so that he spoke and saw.

(Jn.9:1,7) And Jesus passing by, saw a man who was blind from his birth.And said to him: Go, wash in the pool of Siloe. He went therefore and washed: and he came seeing.  

(Is.49:6) Behold, I have given thee to be the light of the gentiles, that thou mayst be my salvation even to the farthest part of the earth.

(Lk.2:32) He shall be a light to the revelation of the gentiles and the glory of thy people Isreal.

(Jn.9:5) I am the light of the world.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
