My soul magnifies… And Mary said: “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; for behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name.And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation.He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly.He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich He has sent away empty.
