“My soul glorifies the Lord,
and my spirit is filled with joy,
contemplating the goodness of God my Savior.”
«Because he has set his sights on his humble servant,
and see here the reason why he will consider me blessed and happy,
«Well, he who is Almighty and his infinitely Holy name has done in my favor,
great and wonderful things ».
“Whose mercy extends from generation to generation,
to all who fear him.”
“He stretched out the arm of his power,
and dissipated the pride of the proud,
upsetting their designs”
“He dispossessed the mighty;
and lifted up the lowly.”
“He filled the needy with goods,
and left the rich with nothing.”
“He exalted his servant Israel,
remembering him because of his great mercy and goodness.
Just as Abraham had promised our fathers,
and all his descendants, for ever and ever.” “Amen”.
If you wish before finishing, you can attribute this following short sentence to the text:
Holy Immortal God
Deliver us Lord from all evil.”
“Blessed be God,
Blessed be his holy name ,
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man,
Blessed be God in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.”
“For ever and ever”
Since it was originally a prayer that came from Latin, we will also present and teach it in its original language (Roman):
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit exults in the God of my salvation,
because he has looked upon the humility of his handmaid.”
For behold, from this all generations will call me blessed.
because he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and his holy name
and his mercy to posterity upon posterity
that fear him.
He made power in his arm,
He scattered the proud in the mind of his heart, he
brought down the mighty from their seats,
and exalted the lowly,
he filled the hungry with goods,
and let the rich be empty.
Israel received her child
remembering his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers
Abraham and his seed forever.
