MOTHER OF OUR LORD
The Feast of Saint Mary, Mother of Our Lord, will be celebrated
at our Sunday Holy Eucharist on August 21st.
On this day we will thank God for the life and faith of
Saint Mary, who has been called the
Mother of all believers
she was the first person to believe in the
Lutherans for centuries have honored
by praying the "Magnificat":
My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.
Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for
the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his
name. His mercy is
for those who fear him from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the
proud in the thoughts of their hearts, has brought down the
powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; he has
filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away
empty. He has
helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy,
according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham
and to his descendants forever.
