Scripture: Luke 1:39-49
The story of Mary visiting her cousin Elizabeth is one we usually hear in Advent. Mary is pregnant with Jesus, and Elizabeth is pregnant with John the Baptist. John leaps inside his mother as he becomes aware that he is in the presence of Jesus, the chosen one, the messiah of the world. Elizabeth, too, recognizes Jesus, and Mary responds with the Magnificat, a song so revolutionary that in modern times it has been banned from public worship in India, Argentina, and Guatemala.
