My soul does magnify the Lord. And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because He has regarded the humility of His handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because He that is mighty has done great things for me: and holy is His name.
And His mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear Him. He has shown the might of His arm: He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He has put down the mighty from their seat and has exalted the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things: and the rich He has sent empty away. He has received Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy. And He spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed forever.
We had only one mishap, Max pulled a wheel barrow full of soil on top of himself! Nothing that a hug and a bath did not fix! And it gave me pause to reflect that even when we have muddied ourselves in our sin, we know that Our Lady will gently guide us into reconciliation and repentance so that we can be cleansed in His loving mercy!
Peace and Grace,
