Today, May 31st the Church celebrates the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
At the Annunciation, the angel Gabriel visits Mary and says she’s been chosen to bear the Son of God. He also says that her relative Elizabeth, who was considered barren, is in the sixth month of her pregnancy.
Immediately after hearing this news, Mary travels to visit Elizabeth. This is known as the Visitation.
First, we’ll look at the Gospel account of the Visitation.
Then, I’ll share four lessons from this significant event.
The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary in the Roman Catholic Church. On October 7th, the annual feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated.
The Rosary has a rich and interesting history that could not be presented or explained in a simple blog post…
I feel it’s most important to focus on what the Rosary is and why it’s beautiful and powerful. My hope is that those who don’t already pray the Rosary will begin to; and those who already do will deepen and spread the devotion.
