That’s Our Gospel
(Richard Rohr)

Luke 1:50-52

“God has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.
God has brought down the powerful from their thrones,
    and lifted up the lowly;
God has filled the hungry with good things,
    and sent the rich away empty.”

It’s amazing to me that Christianity with such direct words as this has still largely been able to confuse capitalism, Western imperialism, the world of white privilege, however you want to call it, with the gospel. It’s ignoring what’s spoken in plain sight.

-Fr. Richard Rohr

What do you feel when you hear these words of Mary’s song?

In your own words, what does Mary’s song speak “in plain sight”?
