Mary visits Elizabeth
A reading from St. Luke’s Gospel (1:39-45):
During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.
And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him. He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty. He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”
I pray every day for an end to abortion in our country Canada and throughout the world. Look at the unborn child of Elizabeth who recognized Jesus in His Mother’s womb and He was only a few days old. Two unborn children as we see are acting as children. Jesus sends a special grace to John and John recognizes Jesus and leaps. This shows that we should consider every child that is conceived a true human being and we are to respect that child. God has already given at the conception the soul to this child and therefore the child can be called a person, a human being. Let us then respect every child that is conceived and protect that child.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I respect you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters living in every part of the world. Just a few days after My conception, My Mother went to visit her sister Elizabeth. A wonderful happening took place as soon as My Mother entered Elizabeth’s house and greeted Elizabeth. John in his mother’s womb recognized Me who was just a tiny child in My Mother’s womb. At this recognition, John leaped with joy, as he recognized the Savior of the world who has just entered the world as a human being. With that leap of her son, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she uttered words of prophecy about My Mother saying, ‘Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.’ All those who pray the Hail Mary repeat these very words of Elizabeth as they are part of the prayer. How special was this visit of My Mother to Her cousin Elizabeth. My brothers and sisters, first recognize that the two unborn children are truly human beings and are to be respected and secondly, My Mother is blessed among women and She must be respected by everyone who believes in Me. Pray the Hail Mary with the heart especially when praying the rosary. I bless you all.“
