    ...it being Advent and all.

    “My soul glorifies the Lord
      and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
    for he has been mindful
      of the humble state of his servant.
    From now on all generations will call me blessed,
      for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
        holy is his name.
    His mercy extends to those who fear him,
      from generation to generation.
    He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
      he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
    He has brought down rulers from their thrones
      but has lifted up the humble.
    He has filled the hungry with good things
      but has sent the rich away empty.

    He has helped his servant Israel,
      remembering to be merciful
    to Abraham and his descendants forever,
      just as he promised our ancestors.”

    From Luke 1, emphasis mine

    "When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist." --Dom Helder Camara, archbishop of Recife
