Advent – Day 26

“Although Christmas can be a moment of joy, many people are missing someone they love, struggling to make ends meet, and afraid about the future. The invitation from Mary is to see oneself as a person connected with God – a God that seeks to use us to further a future that is different and hopeful.” – Ian S. Markham

I was unfamiliar with The Magnificat – or of canticles in general – until I began attending the Episcopal church. I appreciate the beauty in the words and the repetition as well as the wisdom and lessons to be drawn from the text.
