Archbishop Fulton Sheen, was born on May 08, 1895. Here is what he wrote about the Visitaion:

One of the most beautiful moments in history was that when pregnancy met pregnancy ‑ when child bearers became the first heralds of the King of Kings. All pagan religions begin with the teachings of adults, but Christianity begins with the birth of a Child. From that day to this, Christians have ever been the defenders of the family and the love of generation.

“If we ever sat down to write out what we would expect the Infinite God to do, certainly the last thing we would expect would be to see him imprisoned in a carnal ciborium for nine months; and the next to last thing we would expect is that the ‘greatest man ever born of a woman’ while yet in his mother’s womb, would salute the yet imprisoned God-man. But this is precisely what took place in the Visitation.”

Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Ph.D., D.D., The World’s First Love (Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1956), 31.

In Luke chapter 2 Simeon, a man the Bible says was “Just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel” it says that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that he would not see death until he saw the Lord’s salvation. And what was the Lord’s salvation? A BABY. God’s salvation is ALWAYS a baby. God has yet to send a deliverer into the world that did not come through the womb. One VERY notable one crushed Satan’s head! Hense one of the many reasons the adversary is suspect and opposes all childbirths.
When I plead for the life of a child when his or her mother is headed into the abortuary I often beg the mother to consider that she may be aborting her deliverer. That an unexpected pregnancy doesnt have to be the end of a life but rather can be the beginning of two beautiful lives if she would simply allow God’s plan for her to unfold.
