Good News for the Humble (Lk 1:46-55)
Christianity stands apart from the other religions of the world. It is good news for those who are least in society. It is why we find Jesus saying such statements as, “the last shall be first and the first shall be last” and “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” You find the least in every part of the world, in every walk of life. The birth of Jesus is good news and here we find the first Christmas song about it. It is Mary’s song.
