My soul magnifies the Lord...

"God is magnified, not because the human voice can add anything to God but because God is magnified within us. Christ is the image of God, and if the soul does what is right and holy, it magnifies that image of God in whose likeness it was created and, in magnifying the image of God, the soul has a share in its greatness and is exalted." ...from a commentary on St. Luke's Gospel by Ambrose of Milan
