Today’s Responsorial Psalm…

1 Samuel 2:1, 4-5, 6-7, 8abcd
(https://bible.usccb.org/bible/1samuel/2?1)

R. (see 1a) My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior.


“My heart exults in the LORD,
 my horn is exalted in my God.
I have swallowed up my enemies;
 I rejoice in my victory.”

R. My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior.


“The bows of the mighty are broken,
 while the tottering gird on strength.
The well-fed hire themselves out for bread,
 while the hungry batten on spoil.
The barren wife bears seven sons,
 while the mother of many languishes.”

R. My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior.


“The LORD puts to death and gives life;
 he casts down to the nether world;
 he raises up again.
The LORD makes poor and makes rich,
 he humbles, he also exalts.”

R. My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior.


“He raises the needy from the dust;
 from the dung heap he lifts up the poor,
To seat them with nobles
 and make a glorious throne their heritage.”
R. My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior.

Reading I 1 Samuel 1:24-28
(https://bible.usccb.org/bible/1samuel/1?24)

In those days,
Hannah brought Samuel with her,
along with a three-year-old bull,
an ephah of flour, and a skin of wine,
and presented him at the temple of the LORD in Shiloh. 
After the boy’s father had sacrificed the young bull,
Hannah, his mother, approached Eli and said:
“Pardon, my lord!
As you live, my lord,
I am the woman who stood near you here, praying to the LORD. 
I prayed for this child, and the LORD granted my request. 
Now I, in turn, give him to the LORD;
as long as he lives, he shall be d
edicated to the LORD.”
She left Samuel there.

Gospel Luke 1:46-56
(https://bible.usccb.org/bible/luke/1?46)

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.

Formed: Hannah and Mary

The songs of Mary and Hannah mirror each other and reveal a spirit of humility and faith. Their hymn magnifies the Lord and gives him praise. How can you pray with these songs in your heart?

My prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, Holy Spirit within me.
Dearest Mother, you chose to proclaim the greatness of God. You acknowledged His glorious action in your life and in the world, and your proclamation of these truths filled you with joy. Pray for me and mine, that we may also seek to glorify God each and every day, no matter what challenges or blessings we receive. May we imitate you, dear Mother, and share also in your perfect joy. Mother Mary, pray for me and mine.

Show us your Son.
Lord I do thank You for all Your blessings. Each day You bless us with what we need for that day. May me and mine always praise You. And give thanks. For You have blessed us with You presence and each other.
Oh that You would continue to bless and protect us. Teach and guide us. Hear our prayers.
Remembering all of mine that have passed on to You. Mom, Dub, Dad, Abuelita and Abuelito, Titi Evelyn and Fernando, Nana and Coco, Titi Lisa and Manuel, Louie, David and David, Peggy, and Terri, all those not listed but often remembered.

Jesus I trust in You!
Not my will, but Yours Lord God.
Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls.
In Jesus name I pray.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Apostles (Nicene) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Amen.

Lords Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory be to the Father

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.
Amen.

O my Jesus

O my Jesus, have mercy on us. Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Take all souls into heaven, especially, those most in need of thy mercy.
Amen.

Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
Amen.

Closing Prayer

O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life. Grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
