"Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth." Luke 1:39-40

As mothers, we are like the modern day Mary and Elizabeth, as we gather together as mothers and friends. When I greet a friend who is carrying a baby in her womb, I have a feeling like no other. I love to pat her back or put my hand on her belly because I am so drawn to the life inside of her. Only mothers understand the connection we have to one another of bringing life into this world, for it is the most beautiful act that has been given to us. What a priveledge we have as women. Seeing a woman carrying life inside of them is a glimpse of heavenly light. For the Holy Spirit has breathed life in her womb and we are touched by the Holy Spirit by just being in her precense.

As Mary and Elizabeth had that sacred moment together in the "Visitation", so do we in this day and age when we get together with other mothers. And we are called to do our best to raise a little Jesus and a little John. Our greatest work is to raise souls that will proclaim the gospel and live a life nothing short of goodness and love. What a task we have before.....anything is possible with God!
