Prayer of the Day

Feast of The Visitation Of The Blessed Virgin Mary

May 31st, 2017
The Visitation

“And Mary said;  ‘My soul magnifies the Lord,  and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour for He has looked with favour on the lowliness of His servant.'”  (Luke 1 : 46)

Today’s feast day recalls the ‘Blessed Virgin Mary carrying her Son within her’ and visiting Elizabeth,  her cousin  and  mother-to-be of John the Baptist.  Elizabeth recognises that Mary is carrying ‘Our Lord’ Jesus.  This meeting is very special and starts our devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
