DAY 11: GIVING GOD’S PRESENCE TO OTHERS!
(Lk 1:41) “When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth [was] filled with the Holy Spirit…”
CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE VERSE
Carrying the Fullness of Grace in Her Womb, Mother Mary reaches out in humble service to Elizabeth, who, on hearing the voice of her Blessed Cousin…
… is filled with the Joyful Presence of the Holy Spirit
… and experiences her child – John, who is to be the Baptist – leaping for delight, just as the Ark of the Covenant made King David to leap for joy (Cf. 2 Sam 6:14-22)
WHAT IS CHRIST SPEAKING TO ME, THROUGH THIS BIBLE VERSE?
Be an instrument of the Holy Spirit, so that your presence brings joy and hope to the people around you
Mother Mary is the New Ark of the Covenant – having Jesus the Word, Jesus the Manna (Bread) and Jesus, the Priest in her womb
