Ave Maria Meditations

 The Triumph of the Maternal Heart of Mary

But when the fullness of time came, God sent his son, born of a woman (Gal 4:4) namely that Woman who shall crush the head of the serpent (Gen 3:15) , who shall appear clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars (Rev 12:1,5).

This Woman, in pronouncing her Fiat, became the Virgin Mother of God by the power of the Holy Spirit. At that moment her Immaculate Heart became a Maternal Heart; a Mother’s Heart for Jesus and for all those who would be united to her only Son in the Mystical Body of Christ. For this reason Saint Bonaventure exclaims; “The Holy Spirit transformed the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God into a furnace of His love and instrument of His marvelous operation.”

The obedience of the Immaculata in her Fiat indicates a new triumph for her Heart, the triumph over the disobedience of Eve, the triumph of the coming of Christ the King, the New Adam, the triumph of her divine and virginal maternity, the triumph of the most profound intimacy between God and humanity in the virginal womb beneath her Maternal Heart. One cannot overlook the triumph of her Heart when she intervened with her maternal mediation for the spouses at the wedding feast of Cana. In fact, it is precisely her Heart as mother of Jesus that hastens the hour of the King and this first of his signs Jesus worked at Cana of Galilee; and he manifested his glory, and his disciples believed in him. (Jn. 2:1,11)

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.
