3. Summary and Conclusion.
The Magnificat is a sublime canticle. How beautiful is Mary's prayer, how many things it embraces! What a canticle of gratitude to God! It is the canticle of redemption that broadcasts the marvelous works achieved by the all-powerful, all merciful arm of God. It is the canticle of humility. Its "leit motif" clearly shows the path we must follow. It is the same path followed by Jesus and Herself.
They found no other way, They took no other.
Generously, then, start on this road. Throw yourself whole-heartedly into this project. Imitate Jesus and Mary in their humility. Have a tender and fervent devotion to this sublime canticle; say it daily to render thanks to God. And whilst uttering the canticle of humility examine yourself how you keep your promise to faithfully follow your models on the path of humility.
