THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
Blessèd is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of
what was spoken to her by the Lord.
Mary said, "Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be to me
according to your word."
Alleluia! Alleluia! My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant. Alleluia!
Luke 1. 47, 48
Alleluia! Alleluia! My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit
rejoices in God my Saviour. Alleluia!
Luke 1. 46, 47
Jesus said, "Blessèd are those who hear the word of God and obey it!"
Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.
