Luke 1:39-56

In Luke’s Gospel there are two holy and faith-filled women; two babies, both prophets. One prepares the way for the other, the Lord, who initiates the coming of the kingdom of God. Mary’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving is a beautiful expression of her fidelity, humility and love of God.

How blest are we to have a mother like Mary who models for us what it means to be a disciple. Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
