Ave Maria Meditations

In His mercy, God did not want to make the flow of His grace to you difficult so He gave you a channel through which you can enrich yourself with it in the holy Sacraments.

A Sacrament is a sensible sign, instituted by Jesus Christ, through which grace is conferred. These sensible signs are like titles that give you a true right to the grace of God since He instituted them for this specific purpose. What treasure there is in the holy Sacraments! How shortened the way of perfection remains because of them and how easily one attains to God!

Among the works of piety, always give the first place to the Sacraments because the other works can yield the fruit of grace and mercy, while the Sacraments certainly do so, being grounded on the merits of Jesus Christ…Without the sacraments the soul is abandoned to itself and cannot live the higher life which, you realize, flows from the Heart of Jesus.

An aspiration: O Jesus, give me the grace to receive the Sacraments well in life and at the hour of my death.

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.
