DG BookGospel: Lk 1:39-45
Mary then set out for a town in the hill country of Judah. She entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When
Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leapt in her womb. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and, giving a loud cry,


said, “You are most blessed among women; and blessed is the fruit of your womb! How is it, that the mother of my Lord comes
to me? The moment your greeting sounded in my ears, the baby within me suddenly leapt for joy. Blessed are you, who believed that the
Lord’s word would come true!”

 

Reflection:

How many times did we leap for joy simply
because we are delighted by a visit of someone dear
to us? Those are happy moments that mark our
lives forever. This is precisely what happened when
Mary visited Elizabeth. The girl child pregnant by the
grace of God, and the old woman who is past her
prime to carry a baby but has conceived by God’s
grace is meeting now. Joy is in the air. Both are happy
for each other’s wonderful fate. But it is not only the
expectant mothers who are happy in meeting each
other. The respective babies they carry are also joyful.
More so John the Baptist who senses the one he will
introduce later on into the world. Literally, he leapt for
joy. Blessing meets blessing for the first time. The rest of
the time that Mary spent with Elizabeth will be a
moment of joyful retelling of how they become fecund
by the grace of God.
