First Glorious Mystery

Ave Maria Meditations



“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive honor, glory and praise!” (Rev 5:12)


The Glory of Faith: “Faith is the confident assurance concerning what we hope for, and conviction about things we do not see.” (Heb 11: 1)

The glorious resurrection of Our Lord continues in the glory of this most Blessed Sacrament BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE OUR RISEN SAVIOR DWELLS, pouring out His life, His light, and His love to all who come into His presence. If our faith in the Eucharist is weak, then we simply pray “Lord, I do believe, help my unbelief.”

For the gift of faith, all we have to do is ask: “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened.”

Like the apostles we humbly pray: “Increase our faith.”

Blessed Sacrament Prayer:

Jesus increase our faith in Your Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament, the mystery of faith, that like the disciples who came to know You in the breaking of the Bread we may come to know You in the Eucharist in an intimate and personal way with a deep and living faith that grows to ‘conviction about the things we do not see’ and enables us to experience the sweetness of Your love “which surpasses all knowledge.”


We pray through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that You help our parish and all parishes to become a faith community by responding to Your appeal to be loved day and night in this most Blessed Sacrament, where You call us to “pray without ceasing”, for this is where You, Our Risen Savior, dwell, helping us by the power flowing from Your resurrection to share in the pattern of Your sufferings, that we may share also in the glory of Your resurrection. On each bead of this mystery, deepen our union with You until our single-hearted prayer becomes  “ALL I WANT IS TO KNOW CHRIST JESUS… “

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.

    What happens when you can not physically go to Mass because of medical reasons? I in my heart Love Jesus and pray daily but feel I am missing not going to Mass.

      Ave Maria!

      Dear Dana,

      The obligation to go to Mass each Sunday is only for those who can. You are exempt from that requirement if medical conditions prevent you. Keep up the prayers and the love you have for the Lord and don’t forget to pray for us. May the peace of Our Lord and Lady be with you.

      Fra Roderic
