Guadalupe Novena ~ Day 8 ~ ENGLISH9m | Dec 10, 2021
What might be the particular area of my life, even though it be as poor and ordinary as Juan Diego's tilma, that Mary wants to make the sign of her presence and her love, to show her face and tenderness?
How can I become more attentive to my family relationships like Juan Diego was with his uncle?
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor 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 forever.
Praise the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit,
Both now and forever. Amen.
