Ave Maria Meditations

Mary, your apparition at Guadalupe teaches me that devotion to you is a source of great graces. The church has always taught that God has entrusted to your hands heavenly blessings. I have got to ask for them for the salvation of my soul. There is nothing you want more than to give them to me, because you are even more anxious to save my soul than I am, for you know better than anyone else the price your Son paid for it and the precious worth of each grace He so graciously offered to me through you.

Devotion to you brings with it consolation for the soul. As a child runs to his mother in every need, and finds comfort in her glance and kind word, I can turn to you for help when I need it, for you are truly my mother, whose heart is overflowing with kindness and mercy.

Bless the people of the Americas, to which uncounted thousands have come to seek refuge and livelihood (at the apparition site of Guadalupe). Preserve their faith, assailed by the forces opposed to Christ. Petition God that their hope my never fail amid the troubles and cares of this life.

We beg you for a burning charity for God to imitate the works of Christ. We ask you to procure for us, but your prayers, the great grace of final perseverance so that those who are joining to honor you in the kingdom of your Son on earth may be together always in heaven. Amen

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.
