Living the Magnificat
Welcome to the Pray as you go day retreat Living the Magnificat. This short retreat encourages you to prayerfully reflect on the words of Mary’s Song from the Gospel of Luke. Because the Magnificat is recited every day at Evening Prayer, it is probably one of the most frequently used, and perhaps most familiar, pieces of Scripture. But how often do we take time to contemplate the message contained in the words? This retreat encourages you to reflect on the two readings associated with the Feast of the Visitation – a reading from the Prophet Zephaniah, and the Gospel Reading telling of Mary’s visit to her cousin Elizabeth. Through these texts we will explore how to live out the message of Mary’s Song in our lives.
