Ave Maria Meditations


O Immaculata, Queen of Heaven and earth,

refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother,

God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you.

I, (name), a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet,

humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have,

wholly to yourself as your possession and property.

Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body,

of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.

If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve,

wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,”

and “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the whole world. ”

Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands

for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum

in all the many strayed and indifferent souls,

and thus help extend as far as possible

the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness,

since it is through your hands that all graces come to us

from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin

R. Give me strength against your enemies

St. Maximilian Kolbe

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.
