She said, “Oh, my lord, as your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to Yahweh.

I prayed for this child, and Yahweh has given me my petition which I asked of him.

Gospel of the Day: LK 1:46-56

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord.

My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior, for he has looked at the humble state of his servant. For behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed.

For he who is mighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name.

His mercy is for generations and generations on those who fear him.

He has shown strength with his arm. He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He has put down princes from their thrones, and has exalted the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things. He has sent the rich away empty.

He has given help to Israel, his servant, that he might remember mercy, as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and his offspring forever.”

Mary stayed with her about three months, and then returned to her house.
