For the 4th Week of Advent - Cycle C

A reading from the gospel of Jesus according to Luke (first reader only)

 


MARY AROSE AND WENT WITH HASTE INTO THE HILL COUNTRY./


SHE ENTERED THE HOUSE OF ELIZABETH AND ZACHARIAH AND 

GREETED ELIZABETH./


WHEN ELIZABETH HEARD MARY'S GREETING, THE BABY IN HER 

WOMB LEAPED./


ELIZABETH WAS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND EXCLAIMED,/


"BLESSED ARE YOU AMONG WOMEN AND BLESSED IS THE FRUIT 

OF YOUR WOMB!"/


AND WHY IS THIS GRANTED ME, THAT THE MOTHER OF MY GOD 

SHOULD COME TO ME?/


BLESSED ARE YOU WHO BELIEVES THAT WHAT HAS BEEN SPOKEN 

TO YOU FROM THE MOST HIGH WILL BE FULFILLED."/
