“The Lord is the Most High over the kingdom of men,
and will give it to whomever He will,
and set over it even objects of contempt among men.”
(Dan 4:17, OSB)

“For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh,
not many mighty, not many noble, are called.
But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise,
and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen,
and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,
that no flesh should glory in His presence.”
(1 Cor 1:26-29)
