(Luke 1)

And Mary said, “All generations shall call me blessed, for God has looked upon his lowly handmaid.”

Reflection:
We know very little about Mary of Nazareth. It was Mary’s emptiness that caught God’s eye. She especially wanted us to know that she was a lowly handmaid.

Prayer:
Lord God, it was Mary’s lowliness that caught your eye. And Mary claimed it to be her greatest asset.
