Mary’s greatness is extolled in her willingness to place the needs of Elizabeth before her own. Mary shows herself to be obedient to God’s will entirely without counting the cost to herself.

Being selfless is a gift from God. Being able to serve others, even when one has one’s own needs, is the sign of a true Christian.

Dear Jesus, thank you for the gift of Your mother, Mary. May her intercession for me be herd and granted according to Your will.
