The Magnificat is a magazine quickly sweeping the Catholic World. The Magnificat is a daily mass companion which is second to none in its pocket-sized, easy-to-read nature. The Magnificat, according to the publisher, is a “spiritual guide” which will help you to “develop your prayer life” and to “participate in the holy Mass with greater fervor.” This magazine has proven to be each of those things and many more as well. Magnificat also offers Magnifikid and Magnificat Junior for younger people who would like to benefit from the beauty and spiritual gifts offered by the Magnificat.
The Magnificat includes a multitude of useful literature. It includes morning and evening prayers for every day based on the Liturgy of the Hours. It also includes meditations for every day written by Fathers of the Church. Moreover, The Magnificat includes essays on the lives of the saints and the complete readings for every Sunday, weekday, and feast day of the month. The Magnificat prints one issue for every month as well as a special issue for lent and one for advent. This magazine is clearly a cherished tool which could certainly change your prayer life and love of the holy Mass.
Here at the Catholic Company we offer 1-year and 2-year subscriptions of the Magnificat for the same price as the Magnificat website. We do not offer a 6-month subscription or 4-year subscription, but the Magnificat site does offer that option. This magazine encourages us to do something which is not always easy: to daily spend quality time in prayer. This magazine could clearly make a great gift for yourself or a loved one who needs encouragement to pray daily. Or if your loved one already has a subscription to Magnificat, then perhaps you could get him or her a Magnificat leather cover which can be personalized. Do you use the Magnificat? If so, why? How has the Magnificat changed your prayer life and life with Christ?
