28th May


He who did such great things to her is omnipotent. By calling God the Mighty One, Mary intended to demonstrate the feebleness of all men, and to recognise the fact that none but God should be deemed powerful. She recognised no other power but that which she knew belonged to God, and she could recognise no other greatness than the Divine. In saying that “He who is Mighty” had done great things to her, she implied that the things done to her were great in relation to God Himself. Indeed, the Incarnation wrought in Mary was the greatest of all the Divine works, because it was greater than creation itself.

Ibid. No. 13
