WHEN MARY VISITS

 
"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
 

When Mary visited Elizabeth, both Elizabeth and her baby were filled with the Holy Spirit (Lk 1:41). Then Mary proclaimed the greatness of the Lord (Lk 1:46) and announced a spiritual revolution in which the mighty would be deposed and replaced with the lowly (Lk 1:52).

When Mary visited the area now called Mexico City, eight million people were converted to Jesus in seven years. This launched a spiritual revolution which put an end to the demonic human sacrifice of thousands of children.

Jesus may be sending His mother to visit us now. If we accept Mary as our mother on Jesus' terms, we will have a new Pentecost (see Acts 1:14). This will result in the conversion of millions and in a spiritual revolution that will put an end to the surgical and chemical abortions of many millions of children each year.

Instead of rejecting Jesus and His mother, let us make room for them in our lives (see Lk 2:7). In this way, we will have hope, abundant and eternal life, and a true Christmas. Who are we that the mother of our Lord should come to us? (see Lk 1:43)

 
Prayer: Father, make me as open to Your mother as Elizabeth was.
Promise: "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall be with Child, and bear a Son, and shall name Him Immanuel." —Is 7:14
Praise: Our Lady of Guadalupe visited America and a hemisphere was changed forever.
