Magnificat

As a supplement to the Life of Mary Our Mother series (which fits in at “The Visitation”), I’ve put together a short clip on The Canticle of Mary, the Magnificat.

This is Mary’s song of Praise and Thanksgiving to God presented during her visit with Elizabeth, who, at the
time was pregnant with John the Baptist.

So, not only was our prayer “The Hail Mary” conceived at this visit, but this beautiful exaltation of Mary’s and God’s love was delivered as well.

From the Gospel of Luke 1:46-55

And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.  For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed.  The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.  His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him.  He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.  He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly.  The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty.  He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”  (New American Bible)
