“MARY SET OUT AND TRAVELED TO THE HILL COUNTRY IN HASTE TO A TOWN OF JUDAH.”

 

PAG-ASA officially announced the start of the rainy season.

Rain is believed to be a sign of blessing from the heavens.

Like rain, we pray that our lives be showered with God’s graces and blessings.

The Visitation of Mary is full of joy and blessing. Like Mary and Elizabeth, how can we be full of blessings?

We are when we:

*continue to trust and to hope in the power of God at work in us. (Mary and Elizabeth, in their extraordinary pregnancies, put their trust in God.

* Serve without delay especially those in most need (Mary in haste visits Elizabeth, even  in her delicate pregnancy in order to serve.

* Open the door of our hearts to God and people (Elizabeth opens the door of her home to Mary who carries the blessing in her womb, Jesus!)

*Spend time with God (Elizabeth receives the blessing as she spends time with the Blessed Virgin Mary).
