41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leapt in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
42 cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
43 And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? – Luke 1:41-43
Today’s Bible Quote of the Day Inspiration – Luke 1:41-43
The Blessed Virgin Mary went to visit her relative Elizabeth after the Angel of the Lord declared to her that she will conceive of the Holy Spirit and become the Mother of our Lord.
Our Mother Mary is called Blessed. This is against the popular belief that the Blessed Virgin Mary’s significance ended after the birth of Jesus Christ.
In the Magnificant, Mary says, ‘From this day all generations will call me blessed’. That is why we call her The Blessed Virgin Mary.
Being the Mother of Our Lord, she is best placed to pray for us to her Son Jesus Christ. Elizabeth believed immediately that Mary is Blessed and said,
‘And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?’
Even though Mary was her niece and quite young in age, she did not look at the age factor, she was filled with the Holy Spirit and realised that Mary was no ordinary woman, She was full of Goodness. She was so pure that she was chosen to be the Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Prayer: Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of My Lord and Saviour, pray for me, a sinner now and at the Hour of my death. Amen.
