Emmanuel!

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Wednesday of the Third Week of Advent

Emmanuel

At this moment, the bells began to ring for the Angelus. I wanted to begin this prayer that honors the Blessed Virgin, but she intervened. Mary: “Now, your prayer must be to pay attention to my words. Meditate on them with your mind as a sign of your veneration. (Elizabeth/Mary) (December 12, 1964)

Today’s Readings: Therefore the Lord himself will give you this sign:
the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and shall name him Emmanuel. (Isaiah 7)

Prayer Meditation: O Lord, what a beautiful announcement today in today’s Gospel, the Annunciation, when the Word became flesh and dwelt among us! Thank You Blessed Mother for being attentive to God’s Will and giving Your Fiat to the Incarnation. Lord, we are often given signs, and like King Ahaz in the first reading we can be purposely dense and even show false humility, not believing You would ever speak to us, when really we are just tuned out and ill disposed. How weary we must make You at times Lord when all You want to do is live among the sons of men (Revelations 21:3), Emmanuel, God with us! Lord may we listen to the Blessed Mother, especially in the beautiful words of The Angelus, and meditate on them as a sign back to You of our veneration and our love! Because You are our Emmanuel- wonderful counselor, Lord of life, Lord of all, Prince of Peace, mighty God, Holy One, Emmanuel!
