Window to Heaven. Reflection for marriages Luke 1: 46-56


The Almighty has done great things for me.

From the Gospel according to Luke 1:46-56

Mary said:

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
for he has looked upon his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.”

Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months
and then returned to her home.

The Gospel of the Lord


Window to Heaven.

I love the Magnificat because it reveals the inside of Mary’s heart, wide open.

It immerses me in the purity of Love. What an incomparable place. It is the beauty of grace and humility. It is the beauty of the presence of God. Perhaps I could say that Mary’s heart is a window to heaven.

Applied to Married Life:

Becky: Joshua, would you like to join me in glimpsing into heaven?

Joshua: How do we do that?

Becky: By entering into the Heart of Mary. Let’s contemplate the Magnificat together. Mary is full of Grace, the Lord is perfectly in her. Doesn’t that seem like heaven to you?

(Becky and Joshua spent that afternoon contemplating humility, grace, the power of God, His faithfulness, His mercy… Becky and Joshua enjoyed a little bit of heaven that evening.)



We want to live with you in heaven already. Let us always be in your heart. Thank you, blessed Mother.
