(Luke 1)

And Mary said, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.”

Reflection:
The words of Mary are few, and these are by far the most profound . . . Mary giving thanks for God’s greatness and her lowliness.

Prayer:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is indeed with you. Your gift was your poverty and your love—the womb welcoming all seeking solace and peace.
