Ave Maria Meditations

The mangled Body of Jesus is restored to His Mother. We cannot imagine the grief of the Blessed Virgin Mary at this moment. Never did a mother love her child as Mary loved Jesus. Never did a human heart beat with more tenderness for the word Incarnate than did the heart of Mary.

May owed all to Jesus: her Immaculate Conception, the privileges that make of her a unique creature had been given to her in prevision of the death of her Son.  What unutterable sorrow was hers when she received the blood-stained Body of Jesus into her arms!

Let us cast ourselves down at her feet and ask her forgiveness for the sins that were the cause of so many sufferings. “O Mother, font of love, make me understand the strength of your love. so that I may share your grief, make my heart glow with love for Christ, my God, so that I may think only of pleasing Him.”  Amen.

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.
