Luke 1:46-56

Mary’s hymn of praise is influenced by Hannah’s in the first reading today. Both women sing of God’s marvelous works. All human expectation is turned upside down. He fills the hungry and exalts the lowly. He is God’s mercy.

I pray that our leaders find their source and foundation in you, O God. May they lead wisely and humbly.
