As I was offering a reflection on Fr. Solanus and his love for the Blessed Mother, I came across a fact that at first caused a chuckle, but soon became an inspiration.
Part of the reflection zeroed in Fr. Solanus’ daily praying the Magnificat. The Magnificat is found in Luke’s Gospel as a prayer of praise and thanks to God from Mary’s lips when she meets up with her cousin Elizabeth. Mary is flooded with the realization that God has done and is doing amazing things through her.
