A wonderful time of the year!
The Meeting of Elizabeth and Mary. In the late stages of Elizabeth’s pregnancy with her son John, her kinswoman Mary went to see her. So soon as they saw each other, and Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, her baby leapt in her womb. John was yet to be born, but here was a joyous, unforgettable confirmation that Mary’s son, Jesus, would be all that miracles promised he would be. “Blessed is she who believed,” Elizabeth said, “for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”
