شَتَّتَ المُتَكبِّرينَ بأَفْكَارِ قُلُوبِهِم. أَنْزَلَ المُقْتَدِرينَ عنِ العُرُوش، ورَفَعَ المُتَواضِعِين
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا01/من46حتى56/:”قالَتْ مَرْيَم: «تُعَظِّمُ نَفسِيَ الرَّبّ، وتَبْتَهِجُ رُوحِي بِٱللهِ مُخَلِّصِي، لأَنَّهُ نَظرَ إِلى تَواضُعِ أَمَتِهِ. فَهَا مُنْذُ الآنَ تُطَوِّبُنِي جَمِيعُ الأَجْيَال، لأَنَّ القَدِيرَ صَنَعَ بي عَظَائِم، وٱسْمُهُ قُدُّوس، ورَحْمَتُهُ إِلى أَجْيَالٍ وأَجْيَالٍ لِلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَهُ. صَنَعَ عِزًّا بِسَاعِدِهِ، وشَتَّتَ المُتَكبِّرينَ بأَفْكَارِ قُلُوبِهِم. أَنْزَلَ المُقْتَدِرينَ عنِ العُرُوش، ورَفَعَ المُتَواضِعِين. أَشْبَعَ الجِيَاعَ خَيْرَاتٍ، وصَرَفَ الأَغْنِياءَ فَارِغِين. عَضَدَ إِسْرائِيلَ فَتَاهُ ذَاكِرًا رَحْمَتَهُ، لإِبْراهِيمَ ونَسْلِهِ إِلى الأَبَد،كمَا كلَّمَ آبَاءَنا».ومَكَثَتْ مَرْيَمُ عِندَ إِليصَابَاتَ نَحْوَ ثَلاثَةِ أَشْهُر، ثُمَّ عَادَتْ إِلى بَيتِهَا.

He has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts. He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 01/46-56/:”Mary said, ‘My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation. He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts. He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; he has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants for ever.’And Mary remained with her for about three months and then returned to her home.”

وأَخْضَعَ كُلَّ شَيءٍ تَحْتَ قَدَمَيْه، وجَعَلَهُ فَوْقَ كُلِّ شَيء، رَأْسًا لِلكَنِيسَة، وهِيَ جَسَدُهُ ومِلْؤُهُ، هُوَ الَّذي يَمْلأُ الكُلَّ في الكُلّ
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل أفسس01/من15حتى23/:”يا إِخوَتِي، أَنَا أَيْضًا، وقَدْ سَمِعْتُ بإِيْمَانِكُم بِالرَّبِّ يَسُوع، ومَحَبَّتِكُم لِجَمِيعِ الإِخْوَةِ القِدِّيسِين، لا أَزَالُ أَشْكُرُ اللهَ مِنْ أَجْلِكُم، وأَذْكُرُكُم في صَلَواتِي، لِيُعْطِيَكُمْ إِلهُ رَبِّنَا يَسُوعَ المَسِيح، أَبُو المَجْد، رُوحَ ٱلحِكْمَةِ والوَحْيِ في مَعْرِفَتِكُم لَهُ، فَيُنِيرَ عُيُونَ قُلُوبِكُم، لِتَعْلَمُوا مَا هُوَ رَجَاءُ دَعْوَتِهِ، ومَا هُوَ غِنَى مَجْدِ مِيراثِهِ في القِدِّيسِين، ومَا هِيَ عَظَمَةُ قُدْرَتِهِ الفَائِقَةِ مِنْ أَجْلِنَا، نَحْنُ المُؤْمِنِين، بِحَسَبِ عَمَلِ عِزَّةِ قُوَّتِهِ، الَّذي عَمِلَهُ في المَسِيح، إِذْ أَقَامَهُ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَات، وأَجْلَسَهُ إِلى يَمِينِهِ في السَّمَاوَات، فَوقَ كُلِّ رِئَاسَةٍ وسُلْطَانٍ وقُوَّةٍ وسِيَادَة، وكُلِّ ٱسْمٍ مُسَمَّى، لا في هذَا الدَّهْرِ وحَسْبُ، بَلْ في الآتي أَيْضًا؛ وأَخْضَعَ كُلَّ شَيءٍ تَحْتَ قَدَمَيْه، وجَعَلَهُ فَوْقَ كُلِّ شَيء، رَأْسًا لِلكَنِيسَة،وهِيَ جَسَدُهُ ومِلْؤُهُ، هُوَ الَّذي يَمْلأُ الكُلَّ في الكُلّ.”

He has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all
Letter to the Ephesians01/15-23/:”I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love towards all the saints, and for this reason. I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”
