The Visitation Of The Blessed Virgin Mary – Feast 

Zephaniah 3:14-18
Isaiah 12
Luke 1:39-56

The Almighty has done great things for me.

On the feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to her cousin Elizabeth, we also conclude our May devotion. This feast commemorates the meeting of two extraordinary women, one a Virgin and the other barren, both expecting babies against all odds.

After the Virgin Mary learned of her pregnancy, she hurried to visit her elderly cousin, who was now also expecting a child. This encounter was centered on the Word made flesh, dwelling in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Our encounters with others should fill us with joy, just like St. John the Baptist leaped in his mother’s womb. The Good News is that Jesus came to save us and reconcile us with the Father. Believing in Jesus brings us eternal life.

In the Gospel, Mary shares her beautiful Magnificat, a hymn of praise. We are called to consider the needs of others and to thank God for all that we have, even if it is not what we expected. Mary is often likened to the Ark of the Covenant, carrying Christ within her for nine months.

Having received the Holy Spirit and Christ in communion, we too are carriers of God’s word and should act accordingly, bringing His message and peace wherever we go. When was the last time you went out of your way to help someone? How can you serve the Church and those in need?

PRAYER

May God grant us a generous and giving heart so that we may be willing to share with others everything we receive from Him. Amen. Good day. May the Mother of God, pray for us!

Fr Joseph Osho
