Mary’s hymn of praise and thanksgiving is uttered in the midst of crisis. The Magnificat proclaims God’s goodness and providence as Mary and Joseph face seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

New life is often borne out of crisis. When I face challenges, do I have a Faith that can discern a new opportunity?

Dear Jesus, the world is watching and waiting for You to come into our midst. May these late Advent days make our longing for You a witness to fidelity.
