QuoteIcon February222011

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.

He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.

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

He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children forever.

Canticle of Mary (Luke 1:46b-55)

“He said, ‘I am way and truth and life.’ He truly is… For those who through being wronged, through anguish and abuse, through disgrace, suffering, and torment follow this Word in true holy poverty, those who bear with injury, and suffer humbly and meekly and with genuine good patience, learning from this Master who is himself the way—such people give everyone good for evil.”
Saint Catherine of Siena
