The month of May is dedicated to Mary,
the Mother of God
Her famous prayer spoken when she met her cousin Elizabeth is called the
and Mary said,
My soul proclaims your greatness, O my God,
and my spirit has rejoiced in you, my Savior,
For your regard has blessed me, poor, and serving woman.
From this day all generations will call me blesses,
For you who are might, have made me great.
Most Holy be your Name.
Your mercy is on those who fear you throughout all generations.
You have shown strength with your arm,
You have scattered the proud in their hearts’ fantasy.
You have put down the nighty from their seat, and have lifted up the powerless.
You have filled the hungry with good things, and have sent the rich away empty.
You, remembering your mercy, have helped your people Israel,
As you promised Abraham and Sarah
Mercy to their children, forever.

Quiet. Still. Be.
Let your God love you.
