The image of Mary and Elizabeth celebrating their pregnancies brings us what we want in our own lives. A flood of hope for the future. The joy of creation and the love of these mothers to be give us the hope we need for the future. Their faith and anticipation is really “what the world needs now”. As they hold each other in this most sacred of sacred moments, we can be the vessel that God wants us to be. Mary’s faith and obedience made her a chosen one to carry the child Jesus into our lives to save us. Jesus, after His sacrifice and mission wants us to hold Him inside us.
To have that same joy on the faces of Mary and Elizabeth as they shared the news the day of the Visitation. Feel Him with you right now. In each moment of the day, in each action, in each word and deed. Savor each breadth as you pass through this day.
