Blessed are you

visitationOur text for this first Sunday in Advent was Luke 1:39-45 where the very young and expectant Mary goes to visit the very elderly and also expectant Elizabeth. We often read past this wonderful paragraph where the mothers of these two men who will change world history meet. And we forget those words, Blessed are you among women and blessed is the child that you will bear.
