Luke 1:46-55; Luke 2:19
And Mary said: My soul praises the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he
has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things
for me holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those
who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful to Abraham
and his descendants forever,
even as he said to our fathers.
But Mary treasured up all these things
and pondered them in her heart.
