Stewardship Prayer

The Canticle of Mary

My soul proclaims the greatness
of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s
behold, from now on all ages will
call me blessed.

The mighty one has done great things
for me, and holy is his name.
His mercy is from age to age
to those who fear him.

He has shown might with his arm,
dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.
He has thrown down the rulers
from their thrones but
lifted up the lowly.

The hungry he has filled with good things;
the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped Israel his servant,
remembering his mercy,
according to his promise to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his descendants

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.

see Luke 1:46-55
