Very Rev. Jim Heiser
Homily 4th Sun. of Advent
“My Soul Magnifies the Lord”
“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his lowly servant.
From this day all generations
will call me blessed:
has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy
on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud
in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty
from their thrones
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.”
Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months
and then returned to her home.
