Ave Maria Meditations
Oh Father, grant that I may unite my memory to You by always remembering that You are the beginning from which all things proceed. Oh Son, united my intellect to Yours and grant that I may perfectly judge all things according to the order established by Your wisdom. Oh Holy Spirit, grant that I may unite my will to You by loving perfectly that mercy and love which are the reasons for my creation and for every grace given to me, without any merit on my part.
Oh mighty, eternal Trinity, may You be thanked for all the love You have shown us in forming and sweetly endowing our soul with its powers: an intellect to know You, a memory to remember You, I will to love You above all things! It is reasonable that knowing You, all Infinite Goodness, I would love You; and this love is so strong that neither the devil nor any other creature can take it from me against my will.
Oh power of the eternal Father, help me; wisdom of the Son, illuminate the eye of my intellect; sweet mercy and love of the Holy Spirit, inflame my heart and unite it to Yourself!
+Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.P.
