The Magnificat

My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
who has looked with favor on the lowliness of God’s servant.
Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;

for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is God’s name.
whose mercy is for those who fear God
from generation to generation.

Who has shown strength with God’s arm;
and has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.
who has brought down the powerful from their thrones,
and lifted up the lowly;

Who has filled the hungry with good things,
and sent the rich away empty.
God has helped God’s servant Israel,
in remembrance of God’s mercy,
according to the promise made to our ancestors,
to Abraham and to his descendants forever.

What is one way that you remember that God is with you?

What does “home” mean to you? In your own words, what does it mean for God to “bring us home”?
