Ave Maria Meditations
All we have to do, therefore, is act on our belief and open our minds in prayer. The moment we begin to pray our minds are open. And as long as we remain in the posture of prayer, whether we are conscious of it or not, whether we realize it or not, the Spirit of Christ is speaking to our spirit. We make ourselves aware of God and He pours in His divine wisdom.
Once thus enlightened, we must act on what we believe is God’s way of teaching us. Do not let these divinely inspirited ideas remain sterile on the mind! They are there to be fructified in action: to be put into practice. Those who believe this and act on their belief achieve great things for the extension of the kingdom of Christ, as witness those great men and women who never doubted that they were following Christ when they followed the illuminations He inspired in their minds during prayer.
