Welcome! Visitation of Mary Reflection Devotion for the Community
Everyone is Welcome!
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leaped in her womb. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.” Luke 1:41.
He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people. He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD! Psalm 113:7-9.
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good. Romans 12:9.
There is no Holy One like the LORD, no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. 1 Samuel 2:2.
Hail Mary, Gentle Woman
– performed by Daughters of St. Paul
Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star, so strong and bright,
gentle Mother, peaceful dove, teach us wisdom; teach us love.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women
and blest is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of death. Amen.
Blessed Lord, Creator, Savior and Spirit, who invited us to be handmaids of your creative power:
Bless us as you blessed Hannah, Elizabeth, and Mary, filling our barren hearts with your fertile word,
nurturing faith within us, sustaining us as we ripen with hope, until your desire calls us to the time of labor, and we give birth to your incarnate love. Amen.
I Love to Tell the Story
Katie Hankey. William Fischer. 1866.
I love to tell the story of unseen things above, of Jesus and his glory, of Jesus and his love.
I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true; it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.
We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
