Although I am not a Catholic, I was introduced to a Catholic publication many years ago by a co-worker. Magnificat is a monthly Bible study publication that provides daily study. It is amazing to me how even though this booklet must be written months before publication, many days the study is right on point with what is going on in the world. For example, during Hurricane Harvey the study was on homelessness and during the Las Vegas shootings the study was about suffering. Today, the study is about God’s blessing us and how on point it is! My daughter who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has recently completed chemo has been declared cancer free! My family is Blessed Indeed.
Here is a portion of Magnificat’s study for today:
1 Chronicles 29:10-13
Blessed my you be, O Lord,
God of Israel our father,
from eternity to eternity.
Yours, O Lord, are grandeur and power,
majesty, splendor and glory.
For all in Heaven and on earth is yours,
yours, O Lord, is the sovereignty:
you are exalted as head over all.
Riches and honor are from you
and you have dominion over all.
In your hands are power and might;
it is yours to give grandeur and strength to all.
Therefore, our God, we give you Thanks
and we praise the majesty of your name.
We are Blessed Indeed!
