Mary’s Song of Praise

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. And his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; he has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his offspring forever. -Luke 1:46-55

This passage shows how beautiful Mary was. She had a servant’s heart for the Lord. Mary is a beautiful example of a God-centered woman and I wish to have some her same characteristics. To be humble, selfless, brave, God glorifying, and God-centered.

Today is Christmas Eve… I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Must we remember the true meaning of Christmas and reflect on the story of Christ’s birth. Also, I would suggest reflecting on what the Lord has done in your life this past year. It will amaze you… God is so good!

  1. This is lovely, Kaleigh. Your quote from Luke is call the Magnificat. This is why Catholics hold Mary in such high esteem. (We do not worship her, as many people think. We simply appreciate her willingness to go with God’s plan for her in true faith and trust.) She said “Yes” to God with no hesitation. This is why she is considered the role model for faith and trust. She was totally human but given a mission of divine magnitude- to be the human vessel through which the world would see the face of God. Truly blessed among women and all generations have called her blessed.
    Merry Christmas, sweet girl.
