ary’s song for today’s feast of the
Assumption is called the
Magnificat and is based on
an Old Testament song by
Hannah. But the song is not
actually about Hannah or
Mary. It’s about God and
it’s about you and me. The
word “Magnificat” means
that I am praising God for
his greatness.
Mary was blessed because the Lord was with
her. Everyone with whom
God dwells is blessed,
and you are one of those
people. Christ dwells with
you. He has given you
faith to believe in him. He
has done everything necessary for your salvation. He
talks to you, through his
word. He feeds you, with
his body and blood. God
watches over you and protects you until the day he
calls you to be with him. All
generations can most certainly call you blessed. You
are blessed because Jesus
is with you, and he always
will be. So with Mary as our
example we too can sing
the Magnificat.
What are the great things
that the Lord has done for
me that I want to burst into
song about and sing Magnificat? What have I done
that needs God’s mercy
and how do I feel the forgiveness of God? What are
the ways that God shows
he is working in my life,
with the power of his arm,
icat! Through my baptism
God has promised that I will
be his child and he will be
my Father, until that day
when I shall see him face to
face, Magnificat!
Today’s feast represents
the crowning glory of
Mary’s life of faith lived in
the hope and trust that the
promises made to her
would be fulfilled. By singing the Magnificat Mary
shows that she had a deep
understanding of God’s
continual presence at her
side in good times and in
bad, and that her gratitude
was such that her heart
overflowed with praise just
and which make me want at the thought of what God
to sing Magnificat? Time was doing in her life.
and time again God stops By making the Magnificat
me from getting proud- our own, we too can recoghearted, Magnificat! The nise a God who has faGod who thwarts the high voured his lowly servant;
and mighty and raises the we can show our gratitude
common and garden folk, to God for the many ways
this same God never ig- in which his love surrounds
nores me when I stand be- us daily; and we can hope
fore him with honesty of and trust in his promise
heart, Magnificat! He fills that, like Mary, we will one
me when I am hungry and day see him face to face
he laughs at my false and praise him for eternity
claims to be needy, Magnif- with the saints in heaven.
