My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, for the Almighty has done great things for me. Luke 1:46, 49
The song of Our Lady, sung in the house of her cousin, expresses the same disposition that our hearts should always have before God the Almighty. For He who is mighty has indeed done unto us a mighty thing. What do we have that has not come from His hand? Even the challenges and sufferings of this life, in the friendship of His son, are indeed great things; they are pathways of grace.
The Blessed Mother’s song summons us to gratitude. Today, and all days, we will choose to be grateful. A grateful heart magnifies, makes bigger, the God in whom we believe so that, grown large in us, the world around us may see Him, too.
