Message of the Day: The ‘Magnificat’: A Reflection of Mary’s Total Submission and Deep Gratitude to God.

For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For he who is mighty has done great things for me. And holy is his name.” (Luke 1:48-49, NKJV)

Mary’s song of praise and thanksgiving also called the ‘Magnificat‘ (Latin word for the opening words My soul “Glorifies”), is very much similar to the song of Hannah, whose son Samuel was also a gift from God in unusual circumstances.

In her meditations and reflections Mary had probably uttered these thoughts over and over until they took on the beautiful poetic form in which they here appear as her personal liturgy. It reflects her total submission and deep gratitude to God for what he was doing through her. It recalls God’s love in choosing her, an ordinary human being, to be the means of bringing his blessing to humankind.
