I MUST ADMIT THAT I HAVE BEEN READING THE MAGNIFICAT DAILY PRAYERS, MASS PRAYERS, AND MEDITATIONS, ETC. FOR A LEAST 2 YEARS, AND HAD NO IDEA THAT IT WAS PUT OUR BY THE MAGNIFICAT FOUNDATION. I still need to find out more about it’s purpose, but they are having a celebration of the liturgies, sacred music and art called: THE MAGNIFICAT DAY on Nov. 1 in Memphis, TN. “Holiness is an adventure, even the only adventure worth living” is on the advertisement for the celebration. In part it says: “As a participant in a MAGNIFICAT DAY, you will be immersed in the grandeur and beauty for which our souls thirst. Come and experience this divine dimension of your existence! On Nov. 1, join us in Memphis, TN, for an unforgettable foretast of the happiness God prepares for his saints. May our hearts be truly awakened by the beauty of the liturgies, sacred music and art, and the wonderful teachings of this upcoming MAGNIFICAT DAY.”
Apparently this is held each year in Tenn. I can’t attend but it sounds like a wonderful experience. Anyone interested in finding out more or attending can get more info: http://www.magnificatday.com. AND YOU CAN EMAIL for registration assistance at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 914-502-1831.
I ALSO ACTUALLY read the Editorial in the Sept. Magnificat booklet which explains why they include a “Mediation of the Day.” on each day of the month. Tomorrow, I will explain what he says about MEDITATION.
PRAYER FOR TODAY; PRAYER AFTER WORK
MOST MERCIFUL FATHER, thank you for this day of work with all its achievements as well as its burdens. Thank you for all the successes, the challenges, and even the difficulties that it brought me. Your Son once said to his Apostles, “Come by yourselves to an out-of-the-way place and rest a little.” Thank you for this gift of rest. May this time be a chance for me to renew my gratitude for all your blessings. In your great compassion and generosity, please be mindful of those wo are out of work. And help me to do a better job tomorrow. I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. (Magnificat)
