In our Gospel today, after Mary accepted God’s call to bring Jesus into the world, everyone is filled with joy. A joy that Mary proclaims in the song, the prayer commonly referred to as the Magnificat.
God continues to seek us out, to continue to bring Jesus into our relationships, into our individual worlds, into our everyday worlds, into the world as whole.
As we know, when we live God’s goodness, peace, forgiveness, inclusiveness and so much more. The world big and small, magnifies the Lord with great joy.
Maybe our prayer this holy day might be that of St. Ambrose, “let Mary’s soul be in us to glorify the Lord and let her spirit be in us that we may rejoice in God our Saviour.”
