Ave Maria Meditations
Preliminary prayer as we begin these meditations: O adorable Face of Jesus hanging so beautifully on the tree of the Cross at the time of the passion for the redemption of the world! Have mercy on us miserable sinners even at this day, look upon us with compassion and grant us the kiss of peace. O my Jesus, mercy!
First station: Jesus is condemned to death. And he is silent! He, who is innocent itself; He, whose words have power of giving life!
His adorable Face loses nothing of its dignity and sweetness. What a lesson is this for me. O my God! Forgive me all those words I have uttered contrary to charity, humility, modesty and piety. And grant that in my trials I may honor Thee by my resignation and patience. Amen.
