My only thought about today’s Gospel is I will always think of the relationship between my wife Sarah and her cousin Teresa when I hear about Mary visiting her cousin Elizabeth. I wish all people could share the joy, the sorrows, the complete happiness these two women have for each other. It was during one of those visits of Sarah and Teresa that I truly came to love my wife and we have been with each other since that visit. God is good and that’s why we should all take time to thank Mary for offering God one of the most beautiful prayers ever offered in praise of His name…
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
for he has looked upon his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.
and one more remarkable story from the internet…(this image is the background for my cell phone)
Do something great for our Lord today – proclaim His greatness in all that He does for you…for us.
God’s will, not mine, be done.
Be not afraid; just have faith.
Jesus, I trust in You.
