Here are the Scripture readings from the Mass for 31st May.
Below is an English translation of a modern prayer from the German author Olga Warnke (IBVM) based on the Magnificat prayer said by Mary during her visit to her cousin Elizabeth when she was pregnant with Jesus.
The Canticle of Mary
My soul glorifies the Lord
My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour
For he has blessed me lavishly
and makes me ready to respond.
He shatters my little world
and lets me be poor before Him.
He takes from me all my plans
and gives me more than I can hope for or ask.
He gives me opportunities and the ability
to become free and to burst through my boundaries.
He gives the strength to be daring, to build on Him alone,
for He shows himself as the ever greater One on my life.
He has made known to me this:
It is in my being servant that it becomes possible
for God's kingdom to break through here and now.
