Ave Maria Meditations

How great the tale, that there should be,

In God’s Son’s Heart, a place for me!

That on a sinner’s lips like mine

The cross of Jesus Christ should shine!


Christ Jesus, bend me to thy will,

My feet to urge, my griefs to still;

That even my flesh and blood may be

A temple sanctified to Thee.


No rest, no calm my soul may win,

Because my body craves to sin;

Till thou, dear Lord, thyself impart

Peace on my head, light in my heart.


May consecration come from far,

Soft shining like the evening star.

My toilsome path make plain to me,

Until I come to rest in thee.

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.
