In the Visitation episode, St Luke shows how the grace of the Incarnation, after filling Mary, brings salvation and joy to Elizabeth’s house. The Saviour of men, carried in his Mother’s womb, pours out the Holy Spirit, revealing himself from the very start of his coming into the world…. St Luke also seems to invite us to see Mary as the first “evangelist”, who spreads the “good news”, initiating the missionary journeys of her divine Son. Pope John Paul II, General Audience, , October 2, 1996
A MORNING OFFERING
O My Jesus, make me aware that everywhere I go today you are with me. Just as Mary went to visit Elizabeth to be of service. Help me to be of service to those around me. Mary brought You to John, Elizabeth and Zachariah, may I bring You to my family, neighbors, co-workers and everyone I meet today.
