I cannot tell you, after creating the Magnificat Magazine, how many people have said to me “Magnificat has changed my life”. Yet, we did nothing other than to make available the beauty of the Liturgy of the Hours and the treasures of Catholic Tradition.
Encouraged by many friends and subscribers of all ages who asked us to organize a religious charity separate from the publication to permit more of the faithful to participate in the good works inspired by Magnificat, we formed the Magnificat Foundation under the Patronage of His Eminence Seán Cardinal O’Malley, o.f.m. Cap. Its purpose is to promote, or to see promoted, what I would call the “Magnificat way of life”.
What is this “Magnificat way of life”? It is a life modeled on Mary’s Magnificat: on her unreserved and joyful “yes” to God’s amazing invitation to bring Jesus into one’s life and into the world. It is reflected in the way Mary’s Magnificat has been carried out through time and space, through prayer, art, and joy by so many Christian people. Simply put, the “Magnificat way of life” is a daily Christian life, dedicated to participating in and sharing God's Truth, Beauty, and Goodness in all its forms.
Here are some of the endeavors of the Magnificat Foundation to make the “Magnificat way of life” a vivid reality:
For the Magnificat Foundation to reach as many people as possible with its message of love, faith and divine inspiration, we need your help. The various projects sponsored by the Magnificat Foundation - the Magnificat Days, the Magnificat Lectures, can be maintained only with financial support. Your gift to the Magnificat Foundation’s tax-deductible Fund is therefore very important.
Thank you for your generosity, and may God bless you!
