Elizabeth said to Mary, “Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.” Lk_1:39-45
Elizabeth had known the whole story before Mary even got there. She and John were so excited to see Mary that they BOTH leaped for joy! John in his first fetal contact with the Messiah, Jesus, his cousin. And Elizabeth in her, now, certainty that Mary had agreed to God’s plan! What an incredibly joyful moment in the advent of the Savior of the world. What a very blessed moment!
