My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
When I was younger I used to marvel at people running to every Youth 2000 event. “Why are they always looking for a high” I would ask. Now I know the answer.
Last year after I did a Life in the Spirit Seminar I found myself saying these words that Mary said, “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior”. My entire being was just radiating the Lord, my whole soul, filled with joy. I had a lot of bad things happening in my life, but oh! I was so happy in the Lord. I remember, feeling this way when I did COR retreats and after every Youth 2000 event too. My entire being was glorifying the Lord.
In the midst of what should have been a traumatic time for Mary she was able to find joy. I pray that we may find joy in the midst of our daily struggles too.
