Anticipating His Birth: The Magnificat


images (8)Magnificat

My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.

Because He hath regarded the humility of His handmaid; for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

Because He that is mighty hath done great things to me; and holy is His name.

And His mercy is from generation to generations, to them that fear Him.

He hath showed might in His arm; He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat; and hath exalted the humbleimmaculate-conception-792511

He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He hath received Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy.

As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever.

Amen.

  1. Oh my goodness! The icon at the top is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The beauty is spectacular! Where is it from? Is it ancient or modern? I’d like to know where to find it.
    I just read these verses today. My soul magnifies the Lord too! Praise the Lord. Is this version from the Catholic Bible? I really enjoy it. I know I’ve asked alot of questions.
    By the way I’m still being impacted by the face of Mother Mary, which is placed on the sidebar. I wrote about it before but I still think it is amazing. There is something special there, for sure.
