“My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord”

The Visitation by Mariotto Albertinelli

REFLECTIONS by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira on the Magnificat, perhaps the most beautiful words ever written, can be found here. He wrote:

Observe that from beginning to end, the Magnificat is a thesis followed by arguments demonstrating it. It sings with extraordinary balance of the justice and mercy of God to show His grandness: grandness in His mercy, grandness in His justice. It is also a demonstration that all human power is nothing independent of God and a proof of His dominion over the entire universe. It is a triumphal hymn to the grandness of God.
