My soul magnifies the Lord

My soul magnifies the Lord Catholic Gospels - Matthew, Luke, Mark, John - Inspirations of the Holy Spirit Luke 1:39-56

39 And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.
40 And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.
41 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
42 And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 For behold as soon as the voice of your salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
45 And blessed are you who believed, that the things spoken by the Lord would be accomplished.
46 And Mary said: My soul magnifies the Lord.
47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48 Because he has regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49 Because he that is mighty has done great things to me; and holy is his name.
50 And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
51 He has shown might in his arm: he has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
52 He has put down the mighty from their seat, and has exalted the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
54 He has received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy:
55 As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever.
56 And Mary abode with her about three months; and she returned to her own house.

Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary - My soul magnifies the Lord My mother always lived in the Presence of God. Before she conceived by the Holy Spirit she was always in our Presence by means of her holy life of prayer and humility. Her total surrender to Godís will and her desire for the Messiah, advocated for all humanity for the coming of the Saviour of the world. When She conceived by the Holy Spirit, She received me in her womb, She became united to me in the most intimate way, I shared my divinity with her and She shared her humanity with me, the Word of God.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among men, but for nine months it was a miracle of the Love of God inside the holy womb of my virgin mother.

At the visitation of my mother to her cousin Elizabeth, John came in close contact with me, He was to announce my coming to the world, and so He was anointed with the Holy Spirit even before He was born. The baby leaped for joy in the womb of Elizabeth as she also received the Holy Spirit and proclaimed the blessedness of my mother and the fruit of her womb. She honoured the visitation of the Mother of God and praised her for having believed the promises made to her by God.

The emanation of my divine attributes flowed into the soul of my mother. By becoming the spouse of the Holy Spirit she had already received a great share of the Wisdom of God; by becoming the mother of The Word, the Incarnate Wisdom of God, She became the seat of Wisdom and was clothed with divine perfections. At the visitation She proclaimed the greatness of the Lord for having regarded her humility and for exalting her to be blessed by all generations. She saw clearly the plan of God taking place throughout the ages; She saw the triumph of God and his goodness over evil and She praised God immensely in the Magnificat.

My mother continues to be the Most Sacred temple of the Holy Trinity, The Arch of the Covenant, which has been opened for all to receive the Saviour of the world. When you honour my mother with your devotions, you are honouring the Holy Trinity. God has exalted Mary to be the mother of all the living, when someone acknowledges her, he or she is acknowledging the masterpiece of God, the Heaven created for God and all his children, the New Jerusalem.

At the cross I gave you my mother to care for you. Do not hesitate to come to her as any child would come to his mother. She is full of Grace, and her grace is given to all those who love her. She has the power to crush the head of the devil in your lives, this way she can deliver you if you come to her maternal protection. She will lead you straight to me because all She desires is to give Glory to God.
