prayer diary Friday 31 May 2013 (The visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

Elizabeth exclaimed: 'Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And why has this happened to me that the Mother of my Lord comes to me? For as soon as I heard the sound of your greeting the child in my womb leaped for joy.' 
Luke 1. 42-44

From the very moment of his conception Jesus was Lord; this Lordship was acknowledged by St John, also still in the womb. The  humility of God's incarnation was not limited to his humble birth in a stable, but encompassed also the utter vulnerability of being that tiny spark of life which is the common beginning of us all.
