Ave Maria Meditations
By her simple fiat, Mary brought to pass the most wondrous miracle of all time. In silent expectation the heavenly court had watched the great Archangel speed on his way towards the humble home of Nazareth. With joy they heard the Virgin’s humble words of meek submission which brought the Maker of the world to dwell within her womb, and now they see their God, the great God of all creatures dwelling as a little babe among sinful men.
What must have been Mary’s thoughts when first she felt the infant child within her womb, and realized that from her pure blood He had fashion to Himself a human form? She, His Mother! He her Son! What sweet converse between the two, what words of love, of ardent, tender love, the promptings of a heart so pure and good and holy.
