Elementary:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

On this feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary we listen to the Story of Mary visiting with Elizabeth, her cousin – it is amazing:

From Luke's (1:39-56 GNB) gospel we hear:

Soon afterward Mary got ready and hurried off to a town in the hill country of Judea.

She went into Zechariah's house and greeted Elizabeth.

When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby moved within her. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and said in a loud voice, "You are the most blessed of all women, and blessed is the child you will bear! Why should this great thing happen to me, that my Lord's mother comes to visit me? For as soon as I heard your greeting, the baby within me jumped with gladness. How happy you are to believe that the Lord's message to you will come true!"

Mary said, "My heart praises the Lord; my soul is glad because of God my Savior,

for he has remembered me, his lowly servant!
From now on all people will call me happy,

because of the great things the Mighty God has done for me.
His name is holy;

from one generation to another he shows mercy to those who honor him.

He has stretched out his mighty arm and scattered the proud with all their plans.

He has brought down mighty kings from their thrones,

and lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and sent the rich away with empty hands.

He has kept the promise he made to our ancestors,

and has come to the help of his servant Israel.

He has remembered to show mercy to Abraham and to all his descendants forever!"

Mary stayed about three months with Elizabeth and then went back home.

Mary said yes to God and God did the great things through her.  It is the same with us. Will you say yes to God?

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

 


High School

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

On this feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary we pray:

Almighty ever-living God,
who, while the Blessed Virgin Mary was carrying your Son in her womb,
inspired her to visit Elizabeth,
grant us, we pray,
that, faithful to the promptings of the Spirit,
we may magnify your greatness
with the Virgin Mary at all times.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

(from The Roman Missal)

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
