Ave Maria Meditations

A prayer of a soul:

O Lord God, who wisely and justly orders all things in heaven and on earth, angels, men, and all creatures, I ask You, in place of the praise and thanksgiving that I owe You, to accept the trials and anxieties of my heart, which I now offer and true contrition for my sins: turn all that is evil in me to God and what is good to better, and this for the glory of Your Name and the eternal salvation of my soul.

You know my every weakness and my frightful ignorance as well as how, because of my wandering mind and erratic memory, I often stray from You going here and there and at times some distance away from You. According to Your great mercy, Lord, pardon me and delay not in bringing me back to You. Night and day keep my heart close to You in fervent prayer and holy meditation as much as possible for me in this frail body of mine.

Venerable Thomas a Kempis

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.
