Dear Friend in the Lord,

Mary’s Obedience: In today’s Gospel, Mary’s visit to her cousin Elizabeth sanctified the ‘meeting’ of the cousins, and transformed it into a testimony of the Good News of Salvation.  Ponder on, “Do I feel inspired to share my spiritual experiences of God with others, and experience God’s Presence more deeply?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 1:39-45

Mary set out and went as quickly as she could to a town in the hill country of Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth.

          Now 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? For 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.’
