The name Magnificat comes from the Gospel of St. Luke where the Blessed Virgin Mary sings a hymn of praise to the Lord:
My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His name;
And His mercy is from generation to generation
on those who fear Him.
He has shown might with His arm,
He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy
Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.
In this way she is glorifying the Lord and "magnifying" his goodness. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen once referred Mary as being like a "magnifying glass which intensifies our love of her Son". Our founder, Dr. Reising chose the practice name of Magnificat to honor Christ and dedicate her practice to glorifying and serving Him.
