Whenever I say, “Hail Mary”

Ave Maria Meditations

(for the memorial of the Holy Name of Mary, September 12th)

Whenever I say Hail Mary
The court of heaven rejoices
And the earth is lost in wonderment.

And I despise the world
And my heart is brim full
Of the love of God.

When I say Hail Mary,
All my fears wilt and die
And my passions are quelled.

If I say Hail Mary,
Devotion grows within me
And sorrow for sin awakens.

When I say Hail Mary,
Hope is made strong
In my breast.

And the dew of consolation
Falls on my soul
More and more
Because I say Hail Mary.

And my spirit rejoices
And sorrow fades away
When I say
Hail Mary.

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.
