Ave Maria Meditations
Arise, O Lord, and let Thy enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Thee flee from before Thy Face. (Ps 68:1)
What a moment! What a sorrow! What looks I behold, exchanged between this Man-God and His tender Mother! What tears bathe their faces! O heavenly Father, I offer Thee these tears as expiration of all my self-indulgence and the little resignation I show to the holy will. Grant me, as Thou didst Mary, to encounter the look in the Face of Jesus in all my sorrows.
