The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, "Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled" (Luke 1: 39-45).
Isn’t it amazing that Mary goes to serve her cousin after receiving the honor of becoming the Mother of God? Mary is the perfect example of a humble person who is always thinking about others and not about themselves. Mary was a servant-leader.
Thank you, Blessed Mother Mary, for your wonderful example of humble service.
