An Ave Maria Meditations encore

Whenever I say Hail Mary
The court of Heaven rejoices
And the earth
Is lost in wonderment.
And I despise the world
And my heart is brim-full
Of the love of God

When I say Hail Mary;
All my fears
Wilt and die
And my passions are quelled
If I say Hail Mary;
Devotion grows
Within me
And sorrow for sin
When I say Hail Mary.

Hope is made strong
In my breast
And the dew of consolation
Falls on my soul
More and more—–
Because I say  Hail Mary.
And my spirit
And sorrow fades away
When I say Hail Mary . . .

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.
