What did Mary feel during the first Advent?
It must have been a relief to find out that Elizabeth was also inspired by the Holy Spirit and greets her with the words we say in the Hail Mary: "Blessed art thou among women and blessed in the fruit of your womb." And the child in the womb of Elizabeth leaps for joy!
Take some time to be with Mary today and thank her for saying "yes" and reflect on what this must have meant for her and what it still means for us.
Mary always brings me to Jesus!
