We praise and glorify you, God our loving Father, in bringing us back to you though we are not worthy of your love and mercy. In the fullness of time, you sent your Son Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit to a virgin in Nazareth named Mary whom you have assumed body and soul into heaven upon the completion of her mission here on earth.
And so, loving Father, we ask you for the grace to be like Mary, singing her Magnificat not only with our lips and voices but like her, with our lives so that when Christ returns at the end of time, we too would be assumed body and soul into heaven.
Let us always proclaim your greatness, let our spirit rejoice in you alone, not in our selves nor talents nor achievements. Keep us humble to remember everything is a grace from you that we are able to do so many things, great and small alike (Lk.1:46-48).
Let us do your work always, your will be done – not our plans and agenda so that your mercy would pervade in this self-righteous world (Lk.1:50).
