“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day on, all generations will call me blessed:
For the mighty one has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
His mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm;
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children forever.”
– Mary (Luke 1:46-55)
