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.
