Dear Friend in the Lord,
Truth-Joy: In today’s Gospel episode, Elizabeth was inspired by the Holy Spirit to receive the Truth that Mary conceived the Messiah Child. She and the child in her womb were filled with the immense Joy of God. When we love God and live Christ-centred lives, God will also fill our hearts with His Truth and Joy.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’
