JOYFUL EXPECTATIONS
 
"My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior" (1 Sm 2:1a)! He raises us in our weakness and makes us a part of His glorious heritage.
 
As the events leading to the birth of our Savior unfold we see all the prophecies, promises and prayers of the Old Testament being fulfilled because ‘God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten Son” (JN 3:16.) Today’s Gospel of Luke reveals the presence and loving power of the Holy Spirit in Mary’s life. When Elizabeth and Mary greeted one another they were filled with the Holy Spirit and with joyful anticipation of the fulfillment of God’s promises to give us a Messiah. 
 
Mary our Mother accepted her mission with uncompromising faith and obedience. She acted with unwavering trust and faith because she believed that God our Father would fulfill the word He has spoken. Her great hymn of praise, her “Magnificat” echoes the song of Hannah, (see 1 Samuel 2: 1-10). Mary proclaims the favor of the Lord. Yes, God exalts the lowly and he fills the hungry with good things. Hannah like Mary had been without child and God in a marvelous way gave her a son, named Samuel, who was dedicated at an early age to the service of the Lord and called to servant ministry.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Christmas time is for renewing our faith and hope in God and in His promises and for deepening our love for God and those around us. We are called to the corporal works of mercy, such as caring for the poor and lowly and feed the hungry. Are you responding to the call?
