Fr. Jason Smith and Fr. Daniel Ray, Legionaries of Christ, will lead guided meditations on The Visitation (Luke 1:39-45) and Prepare the Way of the Lord (Mark 1:1-3). The Blessed Mother and John the Baptist will be used as models of accepting God’s will in your life.
In this “missionary” episode of Mary’s visit to Elizabeth, Mary accepts the divine will, and offers her active cooperation so that God could become man in her maternal womb. “In this act of human solidarity, Mary demonstrated that authentic charity which grows within us when Christ is present.”
“This Mission is yours…the Church calls you to mobilize yourselves to transmit the faith and specially to live it deeply yourselves.”
“Do not be afraid, Christ is born for us!”
– St. Pope John Paul II’s reflection on The Visitation
Lunch will be served and there will be time for personal prayer, reflection and small group discussions.
