My soul lifts up the Lord! [3rd Sunday in Advent]

Today is the Third Sunday in Advent in the western Christian traditions. The Hopi & Zuni Festival of Shalako continues today.

It is now, at Advent, that I am given the chance to suspend all expectation…
and instead to revel in the mystery.
~ Jerusalem Jackson Greer, A Homemade Year:…

My soul lifts up the Lord!
My spirit celebrates God, my Liberator!
For though I’m God’s humble servant,
God has noticed me.
Now and forever,
I will be considered blessed by all generations.
For the Mighty One has done great things for me;
holy is God’s name!
From generation to generation,
God’s loving-kindness endures
for those who revere Him.

God’s arm has accomplished mighty deeds.
The proud in mind and heart,
God has sent away in disarray.
The rulers from their high positions of power,
God has brought down low.
And those who were humble and lowly,
God has elevated with dignity.
The hungry—God has filled with fine food.
The rich—God has dismissed with nothing in their hands.
To Israel, God’s servant,
God has given help,
As promised to our ancestors,
remembering Abraham and his descendants in mercy forever.

(Magnificat, Luke 1:46-55 [The Voice])
