Daily Gospel Reflection – Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Advent

December 22, 2021 
Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Advent 
Gospel: Lk 1:46-56 

Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. for he has looked upon 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, and 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 remembered his promise of mercy, the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham and his children for ever.” Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months and then returned to her home. 
* United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 


Bishop Robert Barron

Friends, in today’s Gospel, we hear the Magnificat—Mary’s great hymn of praise to Yahweh. 

The hymn commences with the simple declaration, "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord." Mary announces here that her whole being is ordered to the glorification of God. Her ego wants nothing for itself; it wants only to be an occasion for giving honor to God. But since God needs nothing, whatever glory Mary gives to him returns to her benefit, so that she is magnified in the very act of magnifying him. In giving herself away fully to God, Mary becomes a superabundant source of life; indeed, she becomes pregnant with God. 

This odd and wonderful rhythm of magnifying and being magnified is the key to understanding everything about Mary, from her divine motherhood, to her Assumption and Immaculate Conception, to her mission in the life of the Church. 

Reflect: Bishop Barron describes Mary in this way: "Her ego wants nothing for itself; it wants only to be an occasion for giving honor to God." Reflect on this fundamental model of discipleship.
