Marie du jour 2022, 31 May: Silvio José Báez, o.c.d.

The Magnificat is a mirror of Mary’s soul. In this poem, the spirituality of Yahweh’s poor and the prophecy of the Ancient Covenant reach their culmination. It is the canticle that announces the new Gospel of Christ; it is the prelude to the Sermon on the Mount. There Mary reveals herself to us: empty of self, placing all her trust in the Father’s mercy.

Bishop Silvio José Báez, o.c.d.

Secretary (2011), Nicaraguan Bishops Conference

Magnificat by composer Richard Hillert, a through-composed setting recorded by the Schola Cantorum of St. Peter’s in the Loop on the compact disc “This is the Feast: Music of Richard Hillert”, distributed by The Liturgical Press, Collegeville, Minnesota.  The setting was published by Concordia Publishing House, St. Louis, Missouri.
