Ave Maria Meditations

O Jesus, divine Prisoner of love, when I consider Your love and how You emptied Yourself for me, my senses fail me. You hide Your inconceivable Majesty and lower Yourself to miserable me. O King of Glory, though You hide Your beauty, yet the eye of my soul rends this veil. I see the angelic choirs giving You honor without cease, and all the heavenly powers praising You without cease, and without cease they are saying: holy, holy, holy.

Oh, who will comprehend Your love and Your unfathomable mercy towards us! O Prisoner of love, I lock up my poor heart in this tabernacle that it may I adore You without cease night and day. I know of no obstacle in this adoration and even though I be physically distant, my heart is always with You. Nothing can put a stop to my love for You. No obstacles exist for me.

O my Jesus, I will console You for all the ingratitude, the blasphemies, the coldness, the hatred of the wicked, the sacrileges…I plead with You unceasingly for poor sinners.

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.
