51 He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; 52 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.
Luke 1:51-53 (section of the Magnificat of Mary)

Magnificat to which most painted Madonnas do little justice.
