Ave Maria Meditations

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” (Our Lady of Fatima)

Offering as a Little Victim of Love for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

O Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and my Mother Mary, I consecrate myself entirely to you with a filial love that knows no limits. For the greatest possible glory of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and for the salvation and sanctification of souls, I offer myself as a little victim of love for the triumph of your Most Pure and Immaculate Heart.

Deign, oh my Mother, to accept this humble offering and give me the grace to do everything through, with and in Your Heart. May you use me as You wish. Transform me completely within your Immaculate Heart so that I may disappear and you alone remain. Amen.

Ave Maria!

In fact, what we will discover is that in order for us to be instruments in bringing about the triumph and reign of Our Lady in the world, she must first and foremost triumph and reign in us. The glorious, universal triumph of Mary’s Heart starts in our hearts. The triumph must be realized one heart at a time. That said, the spiritual program of this little victimhood of love starts at home. It begins with our consecration to her maternal heart, the imitation of her virtues, the awareness and correspondence to her ongoing spiritual presence, the death to the world and to ourselves and the mystical transformation in the Most Holy Trinity in the depth of the divine sanctuary of her Immaculate Heart. In a word, we must experience and live her motherly presence first hand and then we will be able to bring that presence to others by our lives, words, prayers, and actions.  

(the prayer above) can serve as a model for offering oneself as a little victim of love for the triumph of Mary’s most pure and Immaculate Heart.

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.
