year_with_mary_luke

Mary’s hymn of praise to God The longest quote from Jesus’ mother was recorded in St. Luke’s Gospel: a hymn of praise to God, inspired by her encounter with her kinswoman St. Elizabeth. My soul magnifies the Lord,and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;for he who is mighty has done great things for me,and holy is his name. And … [Read more...]

Mary takes us to Jesus, Mary: Day 002

year_with_mary_louis_de_montfort_1_1

Nor does he consider his mother a rival whose honor somehow detracts from his own.If we’re establishing sound devotion to our Blessed Lady, it’s only in order to establish devotion to our Lord more perfectly, by providing a smooth but certain way of reaching Jesus Christ. If devotion to Our Lady distracted us from our Lord, we’d have to reject it as an illusion of the … [Read more...]
