Independence Day 2010

Magnificat Of America

America, Our America!
Hold to the Vision of Mary,
Mary Immaculate.
Her glory fills the earth,
She is of our race,
Its "solitary boast."
She, alone without sin,
Keeps the doom of wrath from thee,
Who art defending Her glory.
She, Conqueror of evil,
Conquers evil for thee,
Who art resisting evil.

America, Our America!
Pray always to Mary,
Mary Immaculate.
She, the Mother to nations -
She, the Mother of Christ,
The Lord of all nations.
She guards them and guides,
Subduing their hates,
Inspiring their spirits.
She mourns for the prodigals,
As childless mothers mourn,
Torn by their treasons.

America, Our America!
Give thy heart to Mary,
Mary Immaculate.
Join Her prayer of praise,
All Heaven attending,
For our land that is free.
Sing thou Her song of joy,
All nations listening,
Giving thanks to God.
Sing thou the song of souls,
The Magnificat of Mary,
The Magnificat of America.

Cardinal Francis Joseph Spellman

Taken from July 4, 2010 - Magnificat Magazine

Our independence as a nation exists only to the degree of our total dependence on the Immaculate Heart of Mary, who intercedes continually to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
