Ave Maria Meditations

OUR LADY OF THE DAWN

She was clear and fresh as a springtime morn.

And calm as a great unmoving sea,

The purest flower that the earth has born

Was never so pure and so fair as she.

God loved her, God nestled on her breast.

The God of heaven and earth her Son,

Who found, alone in her purity, rest,

And came to earth as her little one.

(C. Houselander, age 14)

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.
