The infant in my womb leaped for you

“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, ‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.’” (LK 1: 41-44)

Our Lord came to us as a human being; He came as an infant, at the beginning hidden in Our Lady’s womb but “visible” for St. John and St. Elizabeth. Our Lord knows how important signs are—He made a lot of them to help us to believe. Also married couples need to express their love in signs, to protect and promote their love.

“Mary is taken up to heaven; a chorus of angels exults.” (Gospel Acclamation)
