Nothing more perfect can be said than Mary says herself. She who is full of grace hurries to help her elderly relative when she has just been granted the greatest privilege on earth! She, the first tabernacle, who carries the Savior of the world. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, please pray for us who have recourse to thee, now and at the hour of our death. Bestow upon us, Mediatrix of all Graces, that which brings us closer to your beloved Son, our glorious Savior and that which helps us to imitate you, oh most pure, humble and Immaculate Mother!

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
My Spirit rejoices in God my Saviour
For He has looked with favour on His lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
The Almighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His Name.

He has mercy on those who fear Him
In every generation.

He has shown the strength of His arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
And has lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich He has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of His servant Israel
For He has remembered His promise of mercy,
The promise He made to our fathers,
To Abraham and his children for ever.

Father in heaven, by Whose grace the virgin mother of Your Incarnate Son was blessed in bearing Him, but still more blessed in keeping Your Word: Grant us who honor the exaltation of her lowliness to follow the example of her devotion to Your Will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
