Mary of the Visitation.

One of the early happenings
In the life of unbourn Christ

The encounter between Mary and Elisabeth.

And the unbourn John the Baptist
Leaps in Elisabeth’s Womb

Blessed are thou amongst women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus

And Mary’s song of exultation
Know as her MAGNIFICAT!

Magnificat

My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His name;
And His mercy is from generation to generation
on those who fear Him.
He has shown might with His arm,
He has scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy
Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.

(Luke 1,46-55)

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

(Luke 1:28-35, 42-48)
