* Anti Catholics seemed to portray the Virgin Mary as incidental or just an ordinary young girl who happened to be walking alone one day and was randomly picked accidentally by the Arch Angel Gabriel to become the Mother of Christ amongst the many teen age girls of her generations Mary in other words for them was a nobody ..To us Mary will always be a part of God's salvific plan, Mary's Magnicat proved that Our Lady was well versed in Scriptures ( She was an educated and consecrated temple virgin after all)..She was the first teacher of our Lord in His formative years and later became the follower of Christ, the first disciple of Jesus the first Christian ..with their common virtues of docility both Mother and child learned from each other..
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour; (Is 61:10)
he has looked with favour on his lowly servant. (1 Sam 1:11;Ps 113:7; Zep 3:12)

From this day all generations will call me blessed;(Jdt 15:10)
the Almighty has done great things for me (Ps 71:19; 126:2)
and holy is his name.(Ps 111:9)
He has mercy on those who fear him,
from generation to generation. (Ex 20:6; Ps 85:9; 103:17)

He has shown strength with his arm, (Ps 98:1; Is 40:10)
and has scattered the proud in their conceit, ( Jb 5:12; Ps 33:10; 138:6)
Casting down the mighty from their thrones
and lifting up the lowly. (Jb 5:1; Ps 75:8)

He has filled the hungry with good things
and sent the rich away empty. ( 1 Sm 2:5; Ps 34:10; 107-9)

He has come to the aid of his servant Israel, (Is 42:9)
to remember his promise of mercy, (Ps 98:3; Jer 31:3, 20)

The promise made to our ancestors,
to Abraham and his children for ever.(Gen 13:15: 22:18; Ps 132;11)
