The Visitation

The Visitation

This Feast commemorates the visit of the Blessed Virgin to her cousin Elizabeth, recorded in the Gospel of Saint Luke (1:39-57). It gives us the words of the Magnificat, which we say or sing nearly every weekday as part of the Daily Office. For more about Mary, Elizabeth and the significance of the Visitation, consider reading these sermons: Hail Mary, Full of Grace (2010) by Fr Mead A Sermon for the Feast of Saint Mary the Virgin (2009) by Fr Stafford Mary, Mother of Us All (2007) by Fr Mead John the Forerunner (2007) by Fr Mead

Father in heaven, by whose grace the virgin mother of thy incarnate Son was blessed in bearing him, but still more blessed in keeping thy word: Grant us who honor the exaltation of her lowliness to follow the example of her devotion to thy will; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
