We sing the Magnificat in with Mary
Historical Mary? - A first century Jewish woman living a hard-scrabble life in a land violently occupied by a foreign power.
We fly to Thy protection, O Holy Mother of God; Do not despise our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin. Amen.
Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix. Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus nostris, sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta
The council treated Mary in Chapter 8 of Lumen Gentium - the document on the Church rather than a separate document because Mary belongs “within the Church” rather that outside of it.
Jan 1 - O God, who through the fruitful virginity of Blessed Mary bestowed on the human race the grace of eternal salvation grant, we pray, that we may experience the intercession of her, to receive the author of life, our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God, for ever and ever.
Aug 15 - Assumption O God, who, looking on the lowliness of the Blessed Virgin Mary, raised her to this grace, that your Only Betonnen Son was born of her according to the flesh and that she was crowned this day with surpassing glory, grant through her prayers, that, saved by the mystery of your redemption, we may merit to be exalted by you on high. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God, for ever and ever.
December 8 Oh God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin prepared a worthy dwelling for your Son, grant, we pray, that, as you preserved her from every stain by virtue of the Death of your son, which you foresaw so, through her intercession, we, too, may be cleansed and admitted to your presence. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit one God, for ever and ever.

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. ====Do whatever he tells you==== John 2 * When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” [And] Jesus said to her, * “Woman, how does your concern affect me? * My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.” —– =====Part Four - Mystic and Prophet===== ====Inkblot==== Migrate feminine images back to God.
