Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Monday of The Fourth Week of Advent
Full of Favor
And then, by God’s favor and under the effect of graces, I was fully immersed in the knowledge of my nothingness and my lowliness. For me, this grace is the greatest by which the Lord Jesus honors me and inundates me. And this is happening more and more deeply in my heart. (Elizabeth) (December 12, 1964)
Today’s Readings: Then the angel said to her,
“Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God.
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
and you shall name him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most- High,
and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever,
and of his Kingdom there will be no end.” (Luke 1)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, how much more can be said about the Annunciation- we could meditate on this scene forever and never plumb the depths. We see the humility of Our Lady who while just a young girl was full of grace, the Immaculate One, who was told not to be afraid as She had found favor with You. Because of Her Fiat, Our Savior came into the world. Lord may we, Her little children, also give our little fiats as we respond to Your Grace and Favor and welcome the Christ Child into our hearts this Christmas. Empty us of ourselves and fill us with Your Favor!
