Dear Friend in the Lord,

Mary’s Inspirations: In today’s Gospel, Mary, inspired by the Holy Spirit, proclaims with great joy, the greatness of God and the challenges that the materially rich and powerful will encounter in their faith.  To have gratitude to God with humility like Mary, is to embrace God’s Plan of Eternal Salvation unconditionally.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 1:46-56

Mary said: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord

and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;

because he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant.

Yes, from now onwards all generations will call me blessed,

for the Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name,

and his faithful love extends age after age to those who fear him.


He has used the power of his arm, he has routed the arrogant of heart.

He has pulled down princes from their thrones and raised high the lowly.

He has filled the starving with good things, sent the rich away empty.

He has come to the help of Israel his servant, mindful of his faithful love

– according to the promise he made to our ancestors – of his mercy to       Abraham and to his descendants for ever.

Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.
