Making Mary's Praise Our Praise

Soon after Mary received the angel from God, telling her that she would give birth to Christ, she went to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Mary greeted Elizabeth with the following praise:

"My soul exalts the LORD, and my spirit has begun to rejoice in God my Savior, because he has looked upon the humble state of his servant. From now on, all generations will call me blessed, because he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name; from generation to generation he is merciful to those who fear him." Luke 1:46-50

Today is Christmas Eve. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, let's share in the joy that Mary experienced in anticipation of Christ coming. Let our souls give glory to God for his gift to mankind. Let us rejoice in the mercy that God has shown each of us, for none are worthy. Let us praise God for his holiness.

As we approach the birthday of Christ, make us joyful. May we share our joy with others. Let us reflect Christ's love in all that we say and do. You are holy and worthy of our praise. We pray in the name of Christ. Amen
