Family Advent Liturgy – Mary’s Proclamation

Mary: My soul exalts in the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, because he has looked upon the humble state of his servant. For from now on all generations will call me blessed.

Family: Thank you Lord for calling us to be your humble servants. May your kingdom be established in our hearts and may your Holy Spirit continue to renew us and our families for generations to come.

Mary: because he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name; from generation to generation he is merciful to those who fear him.

Family: May your story of salvation always be on our lips. Praise be to you for all of the mercies we have received by your hand. Your grace and mercy are everlasting.

Mary: He has demonstrated power with his arm; he has scattered those whose pride wells up from the sheer arrogance of their hearts. He has brought down the mighty from their thrones, and has lifted up those of lowly position;

Family: Father, because of you our enemies will fail. Because of your son, we will see victory over the world and over death itself. Because of the mighty works of the Holy Spirit, our souls will exalt in the Lord, and our spirits will rejoice in God our Savior,

Mary: He has filled the hungry with good things, and has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel, remembering his mercy, as he promised to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”

Family: Dear Lord, as your children, we have inherited your Word and all the riches of your kingdom. Empower us to share these riches with our family and friends. You are indeed faithful to all who fear you, to all who follow your commands. Amen
