The Visitation: The Magnificat


Luke 1:39-56


Here is the Second Joyful Mystery.

Mary traveled to see Elizabeth

Who lived with her husband Zechariah.

She was quite pregnant with John the Baptist.


Elizabeth’s words praised God and Mary.

Jesus would love even the contrary.

Mary would thank God for all He had done.

God the Father would even send His Son.


God shows mercy to each generation.

The Hail Mary is a great sensation.

Mary and her cousin had a visit.

Then Mary returned home, since she missed it.


The Magnificat was Mary’s Praise song.

At the All School Mass, let’s all sing along.
