Mary is a model of missionary discipleship for us because she had a heart for the poor, the people on the margins, the wounded and weak. Her Magnificat is a song of joy for the ages that paints the kingdom of God with brushes of hope and mercy. This day of reflection will explore how Mary’s song reflects our own call to be missionary disciples.
