In Her Own Words

I was going to wax poetic about the Blessed Mother.  Then it occurred to me that Mary could speak more eloquently than I ever could.

Mary said:

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
for he has looked upon his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.”

Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months
and then returned to her home.

She is not only the mother of Jesus, she is the mother of us all.

Hail Mary, full of grace!

    Highly recommend Scott Hahn’s book, Hail Holy Queen and the study based on this book, The Bible and the Virgin Mary, which is available on St. Mary’s parishioners will receive access to this wonderful resource filled with many books, audios, scripture studies and more, as a gift this Christmas! Look for the code on the card you will receive at Christmas Mass!
