Do you feel a sense of real longing this Advent, longing for justice in a world of injustice, yearning for hope and deliverance? This might be a good time to spend Advent reflecting and journaling on Mary’s words in the Magnificat (Luke 1:45-55). Spend time thinking about what a revolutionary message Mary proclaimed. No passive, sweet young thing, this Mary. No, she was courageous, strong and insightful! And the baby she carried within her body brought reconciliation to the world. This baby brought a radical message of love to a world mroe interested in power, prestige and who’s in and who’s out, who’s up and who’s down .
