“When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child
she gave birth to a son.
Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord
had shown his great mercy toward her,
and they rejoiced with her.”
Recall a time when you learned that you, a relative or friend was pregnant.
How did that affect your spirit?
Revisit that moment and savor the joy that child has brought you ever since.
Heritage word—“God asks me to only lean on him,
and to be led by all the marks he has always given me of his Providence,
to abandon myself completely into his hands.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
