When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby stirred within her womb. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice, “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the child of your womb.”
The gospel focus narrows this Sunday. In Mary and Elizabeth Luke sees model believers who welcome God’s word into themselves, into their bodies. Their faith and trust in God’s Spirit is bearing fruit in their wombs. In their visit together these two women share their faith in what God is doing in them for the world.
How do faith-sharing conversations affirm and deepen your faith? How do you embody your faith in the world?
