The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

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.
