THE MAGNIFICAT OF MARY – TUESDAY, 22 DECEMBER 2015
Gospel Reading: Luke 1:46-56
Prayer: Father, we give You thanks and praise for the Magnificat of Mary. It is a song of praise which we would like to be an essential part of our own lives. We recognize our own nothingness and unworthiness, and we praise You for blessing us so tremendously, in spite of it. We thank You, for all of the good things You have promised the poor and lowly. We thank You, for sending Your Son Jesus to the poor, with the promise that they shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. We ask You for the continued grace to respond to Your call, and will let go of and reject all things of this world. We ask You to let us share in the lowliness of Mary. Amen.
The prayer is taken from Fr. Killian Speckner OFMConv., THE PRAYERS OF FATHER KILLIAN – A Franciscan Missionary’s Guide to Daily Devotion, Paraclete Press, 1986.
