Evangelisation News: The August e-zine - to accompany the Sunday Gospels of St. Luke is now available on An example of this Sunday's commentary follows: The meeting of the cousins forms part of the structure of Luke 1-2, in the following scheme: (the canticles are name in italics):
Annunciation of the birth of John 1:5-25
Annunciation of the birth of Jesus 1:26:38
Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth 1:39-56 The Magnificat
The birth of John 1:57-80 The Benedictus
The birth of Jesus 2:1-21
Presentation in the Temple 2:22-40

The Magnificat is thought to come from the prayers of early Jewish Christians, who experienced real
deprivation and who put their hope in God. It conforms to the three-fold pattern of hymns of praise:
a) An introduction praising God (w. 46b-47)
b) The body of the hymn (w. 48-53)
c) A conclusion (w. 54-55)
Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private
ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the
apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them
all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and
brought the proceeds of what was sold. They laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each
as any had need. There was a Levite, a native of Cyprus, Joseph, to whom the apostles gave the name
Barnabas (which means "son of encouragement"). He sold a field that belonged to him, then brought the
money, and laid it at the apostles' feet. (Acts 4:32-37)
