Buoyant New Year!
THE CANTICLE OF MARY OR THE MAGNIFICAT (from Luke 1:46-55):
My heart proclaims the flimsiness of the Noble,
my spirit rejoices in God my Salvation
for he has looked with go on his feeble servant.
From this day all generations will drop in on me blessed:
the Almighty has done massive matter for me,
and holy is his Give a buzz.
He has beauty on family who concern him
in every social group.
He has exposed the strength of his arm,
he has strewn the thrilled in their bluster.
He has cast down the evocative from their thrones,
and has lifted up the feeble.
He has swarming the gluttonous with good matter,
and the well-to-do he has sent not in derelict.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he remembered his pledge of beauty,
the pledge he prepared to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.
