The Gospel of Luke & Mary


I can explain role of Mary in the Gospel of Luke


Reflect prayerfully on the Scripture reading as you listen.

And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.” 

Luke 1:46-47

Lord Jesus, your mother, Mary, our mother, proclaimed God’s greatness and glory in her very soul. Everything she did honored God and you, her Son. Help us to imitate Mary in our own lives and proclaim your greatness in all we do. 

Glory be...

The Memorare 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, 

that never was it known that anyone who 

fled to thy protection, implored thy help, 

or sought thine intercession was left 


Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto 

thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to 

thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful 

and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word 

Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but 

in thy mercy hear and answer me. 


The Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, 

poor banished children of Eve. To thee to we send up our sighs, mourning, and weeping in 

this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and 

after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, 

O sweet Virgin Mary. 

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
