The Canticle of Mary

The Canticle of Mary

A reading from the Gospel of Saint Luke 1, 46 – 56:

And Mary said,
“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed.
The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him.
He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.
He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly.
The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy,
according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”

Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.

We are now very close to the Feast of Christmas. The Feast of the Birth of Jesus is a very important feast. For the first time the Son of God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, becomes a human being. He took his humanity in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, selected by the Father from the beginning. Jesus came to live among us as one of us because He loves us and He showed us by His great suffering and death on the cross that He wants to redeem us all His brothers and sisters. So you my friends, I wish you a Holy and Precious Christmas, a Feast beyond any you have experience and I ask the Lord to give each one of you a precious spiritual gift that will remain with you for the rest of your life. I love you all.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,

“My Mother Mary sang a wonderful canticle after Her cousin Elizabeth spoke to Her the words divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit. Her first words refer to God the Father who is the greatest in all the world. She rejoices in the fact that God is Her Savior. She presents Herself as the handmaid of the Lord; this means a lowly person who is full of humility. Because of Her lowliness, She predicts that all the people will call Her Blessed. That is why today the Church calls Her the Blessed Virgin Mary.
It is true that God the Father has done great things for Her especially by selecting Her to be My Mother. It is true that the Father is merciful to all those who love Him and follow Him. He does not like people who are haughty and full of pride. If rulers are like this, He will surely get rid of them but He will lift up the humble and the poor. He will feed the hungry but the rich with their pride will be driven away. It was the Father who selected the Israelites to be His people and He showed mercy to them and He has helped them many times. He selected Abraham to form this great Nation of the Jews and He helped them all through the years. You know that I, Jesus, was born a Jew and Our Blessed Mother was a Jewess too. Although at the end the majority of the Jews rejected Me, their Savior, yet I died for them all. Of course all the Apostles were Jews and many others followed Me while I was on earth but not the leaders of the Jews. They had Me crucified. However, I suffered My Passion for you all so that you could be members of the Kingdom of God. I love you all.”

P.S. It was cloudy all day but there was no snow or rain. Tomorrow we should see the sun.
