When Mary visited Elizabeth in her need, a model of the Christian life emerged. In crisis, disciples of Jesus seek to help others. It is in service that a servant of God finds the Truth.

How do I respond to others in need? What does a crisis evoke in my heart? Do my words and deeds give witness to a generous heart?

O God, may I be a disciple who responds to others in need. When I encounter a crisis, may I give witness to the power of God’s love.
