Great Things.

8. Mary said, “God does great things: because of my baby the hungry will be fed, the poor will be lifted up.”

‘Christ be with me, Christ within me’ – such a subtle prayer that can only reflect Mary’s song.

Mary understood the significance of her baby. In the eye of the wise, those who saw her (Elizabeth) and those who were to see her babe (Simeon), there seems to develop a critical prophetic eye. That the child will grow to be a mover and shaker, but not in the business or political sense. Jesus was to become the Emmanuel- ‘God with us’ – for the poor and marginalised.

Therefore in the prayer ‘Christ be with me, Christ within me’ maybe we should hear Mary saying to us, “God does great things: because of my son in you, the hungry will be fed, the poor will be lifted up.”

May you reflect the Christ light in you dealings, particularly the marginalised today. Do something that shows that light today.
