(The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,” Lk 1:39-56
Mary’s visitation to her cousin Elizabeth – a sign of respect, a sign of love, a confirmation, a respite. And in the process a two humble prayers of thanks to our awesome God: our “Hail Mary” and the Magnificat (the Canticle of Mary). Thank you Mary for saying yes to God, to Jesus. Thank you Elizabeth for raising John the Baptist. And thank you God for loving us so!!!
