The Gospel Today

Mary then set out for a town in the hill country of Judah. She entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leapt in her womb. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and giving a loud cry, said, “You are most blessed among women; and blessed is the fruit of your womb! How is it, that the mother of my Lord comes to me? The moment your greeting sounded in my ears, the baby within me suddenly leapt for joy Blessed are you, who believed that the Lords’s word would come true!”

If you have too much to do, with God’s help, you will find time to do it all. ~ St Peter Canisius, priest & doctor, feast 21 December
