And Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has

rejoiced in God my Savior.For He has regarded the lowly state of

His maidservant; 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 His mercy is on those who fear Him from

generation to generation.He has shown strength with His arm;

He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the

lowly.He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He

has sent away empty. He has helped His servant Israel,

a remembrance of His mercy, As He spoke to our

fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever.”

- Luke 1:46-55
