Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Mother of God, Mother – of – God, Mother —- of —- God… as you pray stop here for a moment and think about it, meditate on it, sit in the silent echo of these words and wonder…
I was awed into complete silence as I sat meditating on these words – Mother of God
I received a book in the mail a few days ago. I am very excited to read it, but each time I have sat down to begin, something has distracted or interrupted me and twice I have fallen right to sleep.
If the author was still alive he might suggest that my plans to read it are being thwarted, but as this thought crossed my mind this evening I was reminded that even if this is the case, He already knew it would happen. He waits so patiently for me to begin, knowing the exact hour, minute and second when I will finally sit down and begin to decipher this message that He has sent me.
Fear not my friends… His plans cannot be thwarted!
