21st May


When Mary heard Elizabeth so sublimely extol her faith, and the happiness of Mary’ s glorious election to be the Mother of God, Mary, full of profound humility and gratitude, began at once to acknowledge the Lord as the author of all her glory, and to attribute to Him alone her exaltation. She did not, as false humility is wont to do, pretend not to know, nor did she seek to conceal, the greatness that had been bestowed upon her. On the contrary, she showed herself to be fully conscious of its possession, and freely acknowledged it, but only as the work of the Lord: My soul, she said, magnifies the Lord.

Ibid. No. 3
