Meditations

“Death before Dishonour”

Pursued by a hunter who encircles it with mud, the ermine chooses to surrender its life rather than soil its coat. Upright souls act likewise when they prefer death rather than wallowing in the mire of sin.

Hymn of Wisdom, Humility and Grandeur

The promise made to Abraham was fulfilled: Our Lady carried in her womb the Expectation of the Nations. Inspired by the Most High, She composes this marvellous hymn, an inestimable jewel of God’s praises.

“Do not be unbelieving, but believe”

“Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving…”

Saint Mary Magdalene: The one that loved much

The passionate soul does not know fear, it does not measure risks. In the Garden of Olives the Apostles fled in terror. Mary Magdalene, on the other hand, went out in search of her Beloved, and He went to meet her.
