"And Mary said: My soul magnifies the Lord. And my spirit leaps for joy in God my Savior. For he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name." Like Mary, we need to recognize how blessed we are by God; from human life to a share in God's own divine life; from the many blessings we remember to those we are not aware of. Like Mary, a constant hymn of praise and thanksgiving to God should rise from within us.  Like Mary, we should desire to please God in all things, to embrace his will in our life. Though Christ was within her, she longed with expectant joy for his birth. Though Christ is within us, we too should long with anticipated joy for his coming in the present moment. Come, Lord Jesus, come!
