MAY 31, 2010

Shout for joy, daughter of Zion, Israel, shout aloud! Rejoice, exult
with all your heart, daughter of Jerusalem! Yahweh has repealed your
sentence; he has turned your enemy away. Yahweh is king among you,
Israel, you have nothing more to fear. When that Day comes, the
message for Jerusalem will be: Zion, have no fear, do not let your
hands fall limp. Yahweh your God is there with you, the warrior-
Saviour. He will rejoice over you with happy song, he will renew you
by his love, he will dance with shouts of joy for you, as on a day of
festival. I have taken away your misfortune, no longer need you bear
the disgrace of it.

LUKE 1:39-56
Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the
hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah's house and
greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard
Mary's greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled
with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, 'Of all women you
are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why
should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look,
the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt
for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by
the Lord would be fulfilled.' And Mary said: My soul proclaims the
greatness of the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant. Yes, from
now onwards all generations will call me blessed, for the Almighty has
done great things for me. Holy is his name, and his faithful love
extends age after age to those who fear him. He has used the power of
his arm, he has routed the arrogant of heart. He has pulled down
princes from their thrones and raised high the lowly. He has filled
the starving with good things, sent the rich away empty. He has come
to the help of Israel his servant, mindful of his faithful love -
according to the promise he made to our ancestors -- of his mercy to
Abraham and to his descendants for ever. Mary stayed with her some
three months and then went home.

The Magnificat is a hymn of high praise to God for the wonders the
Lord has done. This should be the prayer of all Christians. We should
proclaim the greatness of the Lord in our lives. Do we see his
goodness? The fact that the Lord comes and visits us and considers us
worthy of the Savior despite our sins and human frailties should have
us rejoicing already.

Why should we be honored with a visit from the Lord? The Lord visits
us every time the word of God is proclaimed. We only need eyes to
recognize His footsteps in our daily lives. His presence is felt in
all the events in our history. God is the ultimate equalizer and
justice maker. He is the ultimate showcase of love for mankind,
specifically for you and me today! In today's reading, the Lord visits
us and welcomes us to do His will. Let us rejoice!
