The Visitation

On this day we remember the visit Mary made to her cousin, Elizabeth. It is during this visit that Mary praised God by proclaiming her Magnificat. The Magnificat is a prayer that reminds us of our willingness to thank and serve God each day. 

Let us pray: I acclaim the greatness of the Lord, I delight in God my savior, who regarded my humble state. For God, wonderful in power has used that strength for me. Holy is the name of the Lord, whose mercy embraces the faithful one generation to the next. The mighty arm of God scatters the proud, pulls tyrants from their thrones, and raises up the humble. God remembers the promise He made to our ancestors, to Abraham’s heirs forever. Amen.
