Ave Maria Meditations

“Now thou dost dismiss Thy servant, O Lord, according to Thy word in peace because my eyes have seen Thy salvation which Thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:  A light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel.” And His father and mother were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning Him. And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His Mother: “Behold this Child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted;  And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed.”  (Lk 2: 30-35)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by Him: and without Him was made nothing that was made.  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it…That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.  He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not. (Jn 1: 1-5,9-10)

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.
