Mary Visits Elizabeth
A reading from St. Luke’s Gospel (1:39-56):
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.”
Mary remained with her about three months and then returned to her home.
It rained yesterday but it stopped before noon. Please pray to Our Mother that Her intentions will be fulfilled soon.
Below you will find the message of Our Dear Mother Mary given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words,
“I bless you, My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters who love My Son Jesus and accept Me as your Mother. Today is the Feast of My visit to My cousin Elizabeth. The angel had told me that she was with child and so I decided to go and visit her and to help her with her chores for about three months. When I greeted Elizabeth, her child, John the Baptist, leaped in her womb out of joy and his mother was filled with the Holy Spirit. Her words to me now form part of the Hail Mary, the prayer you recite every day when you pray the rosary. Her unborn child received a special grace from My Son Jesus I was carrying in My womb. These two unborn children communicated with one another and influenced their mothers. This shows that we should know that the unborn is a human being from the time of his or her conception. Therefore to abort an unborn child is to commit murder, and all who do this will have to pay for this horrible sin. Never allow a doctor to kill your child, but keep him close to you and love that child. After Elizabeth prophesied, I sang My canticle and I was filled with great joy. I would like every one of you would read or sing My canticle every day. May the Lord bless you all.”
P.S. I wish you all a great Feast of the Visitation.
