Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Luke 1:46 - 56
Mary, the Mother of Jesus knew how to prepare for His coming. “My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour...” Each day of my life, how do I prepare for Christ’s welcome into my being? Do I magnify my plans, passions and pastimes? Or does my whole being, through my thoughts, words and actions, magnify the Lord and rejoice in his salvation –salvation from darkness to light, from despair to hope and from death to life? Awake my soul! Magnify the Lord and rejoice in God our Saviour.
His name will be called Emmanuel, because he will be God-with-us. (Isaiah 7:8 )
O Come, King of all nations, source of your Church’s unity and faith: save all people, your own creation.
