Visitation


A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer

Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

 Domenico Ghirlandaio : The Visitation
Musée du Louvre, Paris, c.1491

 

Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary:  Welcome the Word at Every Moment

Readings for Mass

First Reading: Zephaniah 3:14-18 or Romans 12:9-16
Responsorial Psalm: Isaiah 12:2-3, 4, 5-6
Gospel: Luke 1:39-56


When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leaped in her womb
(NRSV, Lk 1:41a).

Let us pray.

Father, you send the Word to every human being in every place at every moment. The Word brings the gift of your life and the challenge for us to accept it and grow in it in every situation.

With John the Baptist may be we welcome the Word at every moment as we are called to become one with you, Father, and to grow constantly in your divine life given to us in the Holy Spirit.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
