Mary’s Song of Praise

I often reflect on Mary’s words in the Magnificat in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Young Mary knows that God’s calling on her life to bear His son would undoubtedly come with complications and questions in her community, in her betrothal, and in the political climate of that day. Nonetheless, she is full of faith. She is, in the midst of uncertain times, giving praise for not only who God is, but for the way he has included her in his plan.
