As the Lord led me to grow in my Spiritual life and to desire an intimate relationship with Him, I began to become concerned. I saw the changes He was making and I was aware of Him molding me. I was concerned that as I relished these realizations, that I remained aware that it was God working in me; that it was Him and not me.
A Spiritual Father recommended that I pray the Magnificat. He said that Mary would show me how to rejoice in God and remain humble.
Today, as we read Lk 1:46-56, I share that same direction with you:
Let Our Blessed Mother show you the Way.
“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, Mother of Our Lord, pray for us.
