My Soul Proclaims the Greatness of the Lord

Let Mary’s soul be in each of you to proclaim the greatness of the Lord. Let Her spirit be in each to rejoice in the Lord. Christ has only one mother in the flesh, but we all bring forth Christ in faith. Every soul receives the Word of God if only it keeps chaste, remaining pure and free from sin, it’s modesty undefiled.  The soul that succeeds in this proclaims the greatness of the Lord, just as Mary’s soul magnified the Lord and her spirit rejoiced in God her Savior. ~Saint Ambrose~Liturgy of the Hours~
