The Feast of the Visitation

With self-forgetful love the Virgin Mary  travels far to visit her cousin, now in her sixth month. A pregnant Virgin embraces one thought to be forever barren, for once again God has reversed the way things are supposed to be. God interrupts, and two lives are blest and transformed. Mary bears God’s son, Elizabeth his forerunner. As Mary sings her thanksgiving, Elizabeth feels the child within her bouncing with joy.

Perhaps too often we have forgotten how to wonder, how to be amazed at the great things God is doing for us even now. Perhaps too often we have forgotten that nothing is impossible with God.
