Ave Maria Meditations

Anyone who has not begun to pray, I beg for the love of the Lord, not to miss so great a blessing. There is no place here for fear, but only desire. Or even if a person fails to make progress or to strive after perfection so that he may merit the consolations and favors given to the perfect by God, yet he will gradually gain a knowledge of the road to heaven.  And if he perseveres, I hope in the mercy of God Whom no one has ever taken for a Friend without being rewarded, in mental prayer which in my view is nothing but a friendly way of  talking in private with Him Who we know loves us.

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.
