(Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Elizabeth said to Mary, “Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” Lk_1:39-56
The Lord speaks with us too beloved, in many and varied ways. Maybe He’s speaking to us through the Scriptures. Maybe it’s a spouse or a friend. It might even be a total stranger. He is calling us to trust in Him, just as Mary trusted. And then to move that trust into action! Go the extra step! Hold that door. Refrain that curse or angry response to injustice. Pray for them instead. Smile and offer peace to the Sauls in your life. Who knows they might just be the next Pauls (personalities unchanged, but with a much better goal in life). And praise God for diversity (and His humor)!
