New Lutheran Quote of the Day

A Lutheran would see the analogy between the Mother of God and the Church as nowhere better typified than in the use of the Magnificat as the vespers canticle.  In this place the Magnificat has become more than a memorial; the words that the Gospel attributes to our Lord's mother have been wholly appropriated as the prayer of His bride. ––Blessed Arthur Carl Piepkorn, The Church, p. 321.
