Advent 2011, Day 24

Our soul waits for the LORD,
who is our help and our shield,
For in him our hearts rejoice;
in his holy name we trust.   Ps. 33
The Visitation
Today, we discussed the 'joy' of Elizabeth when Mary visited her on the third month of her pregnancy.

Blessed are you who believed 
that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.
With just days until Christmas, 
we listen to readings of joy and fulfillment.
We imagine the incredible meeting of Mary and Elizabeth.
With growing anticipation, we let ourselves simply believe that the Lord's many promises to us these weeks will be fulfilled.
