Luke 1:39 - 45

Blessed are you who Believed

Have you ever heard news so good, so amazing, and life-changing that you can’t sit still? You have to share it with someone else?

Isn’t it comforting to know that the Mother of God felt the same way?

Upon hearing that her cousin Elizabeth was pregnant, Mary dropped everything and made the 80-mile journey — on foot! Across the dangerous countryside! — to see her. When she arrived and greeted Elizabeth, baby John leapt in utero.

It’s a beautiful witness to what we have at every Mass. The Lord and Savior is present to us, fully and completely. It’s a gift we’re given whenever we take the time to go.

We probably don’t have to make a long journey on foot across the countryside to get there. We may find ourselves taking it for granted and even tuning it out.

“Blessed are you who believed,” Elizabeth cried loudly to Mary.

Would she say the same to us?

It’s time to jump in the car and take a tour of the local Christmas lights. Singing Christmas Carols while sipping hot cocoa adds to the Advent spirit!
