In Luke 18.31-19.10, the meaning of Jesus’ word is hidden from his disciples. A blind man begs for sight. A tiny tax collector named Zacchaeus climbs a tree to see Jesus through a crowd. There’s all sorts of reasons people can’t see. But Jesus cures not only the blindness of the eyes, but of the heart and spirit.Advertisements

In Luke 1.39-55, the pregnant virgin Mary visits her also pregnant post-menopausal cousin, Elizabeth. As the two ladies confer over their miraculous pregnancies, the baby in Elizabeth’s womb begins to dance. And Mary begins to sing.
Mary sings a protest song straight out of the Little Red Hymnal of the Old Testament Prophets and Maccabean revolutionaries.
This Advent, don’t try and tame the Magnificat. It’s downright subversive.
