From the very blessed lips of our own wonderful, Virgin Mary!

There is so much theologically in her statement, her Magnificat regarding the poor, the rich, the proud, and the humble, and God’s dealings with them.

These themes are beautiful threads strung throughout His Holy Scriptures, if only we would take the time to read them?!

Luke 1:46–55 (D-R):

And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord.

47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

48 Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

49 Because he that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is his name.

50 And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.

51 He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

52 He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble.

53 He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away.

54 He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy.

55 As he spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

I dedicate these passages of Holy Scripture to my wonderful, most beautiful patron saint… Mother Mary!

Continue to pray for us sinner’s dear, Mother Mary! For we all are in need of the blessings of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ the Risen Lord, our only savior!

Dear Mother Mary, I watch, and witness the degradation of the poor, homeless, widowed, and orphans, and so much more!

Please pray for us to be conformed into, the very image of the fruit of your immaculate womb, our Lord Jesus Christ!

And, to be able to live as the apostles, and followers of the Risen Lord, as in the book of Acts!?

I ask for the homeless, the poor, and the lost souls within the church’s, our most lovely Lady, Mother Mary! Amen!

I pray that those who have ears may hear, and their hearts be converted to the cross of the Risen Lord, Jesus Christ!

God bless you all and your families!

Thank you for stopping by and reading the writings of this crazy old man, for my heart breaks everyday

  1. There is another part of this whole scene that always, every time I read or think about it just blows my mind, and that is when St. Elizabeth says, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of the womb.” Now, here’s the kicker for me, ” And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?”
    It’s that last piece that floors me Everytime! I have had some amazing things happen to me because of this relationship between Mother Mary, and I. She started it! lOl 😂
    God bless Mother Mary!
    God bless you and your family, Agent X!

  2. That v 53 really kicks me in the jimmy! I have read this prayer all my life, but once I was on the streets among the poor, it suddenly jumped off the page at me.

    The Magnificat is such a powerful prayer, and to think of it on the lips of such a young maiden. She should be clueless, but her complete and utter trust in God is so complete and total that it overpowers any I have ever known.

    I like to pray her prayer sometimes because it stretches me! Her faith is bigger than me, but I need to grow, and her words stretch the growth all through me.

    Thanx for this post!

    1. It stretches me too.
      And, I love to read it out loud especially, when the chaos around me seems to be attempting to drown out my hope.

      For me, she is the perfect example of a creature of God, towards God’s will.

      My soul aches, my heart breaks and yet, this prayer helps to console me in ways I do not understand.

      Thank you for your comment 😊
      God bless you, my friend!

      1. V37 just really blows this prayer wide open (not actually part of the prayer itself). She answers the angel saying, “I am the handmaiden of the Lord. May he do with me as he desires.”

        Wow!

        And the LORD runs her through the ringer!

        But I never think of that prayer, of all the happiness and insight to be found in it in the shadow of that commitment.

        Even Jesus will say: “If there is another way, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless Your will, not mine.” Mary, though… Wow! Do with me as You desire. Who says that?

        That is childlike faith.

        My child would follow me into the gas chambers of Auschwitz just as innocently as Mary devotes herself to God. My child cannot imagine life outside my care. (He is only 4) But that is the way of child-like faith.

      2. That is the whole Crux of the matter… Your will be done, not mine. And believing that no matter what happens… Believing God has his hands in it! Not easy. I love the part where you write, ” who says that?” And yet, that’s been my feeble prayer, even when I am kicking and screaming all the way. Throughout all my battle’s, and some looses, God and His faithful Mother Mary have always been there with us 💗
