For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, today's reading causes me to realize that You really have found favor with me and blessed me beyond probably what I truly deserve. When I think about all of the things that I have done, thought and said, as well as, what I did not do, think or say when I should have, shows me that You have also shown me great mercy. Thank You Father! It does not take a genius to realize that You have been Good to me. I know that sometimes I can get wrapped up in my own personal drama, my own haste and poor-poor-pitiful-me and forget that You are on my side and that You are my Source, Supply and Substance. You are Timing in and of itself. Everything is in Your time, not mine. Anything that is Good that comes to me had to come from You. I acknowledge Your Presence in my Life and ask You to stay with me all the days of my Life.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
46 And Mary said to Elizabeth, "My soul magnifies the Lord,
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for He has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed;
49 for He who is mighty has done great things for me, and Holy is His Name.
50 And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with His arm, He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts,
52 He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree;
53 He has filled the hungry with Good things, and the rich He has sent empty away.
54 He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy,
55 as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to His posterity for ever."
56 And Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months, and returned to her home.
