The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Luke 1:39-56
Two women who felt oppressed and isolated suddenly realize their greatness and are free to celebrate their blessing. Mary and Elizabeth become community. They need each other, just to be together and protect each other, support each other, and affirm each other. Elizabeth and Mary stay together for three months. Then each of them is ready to face her truth alone without fear, willing to face whatever God has in store for her.
