Luke 1:42; "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb."
By REV. FR. PAUL ANIGBORO

Intimacy and affection is something absolutely special in every relationship. There’s a gentle tone of intimacy and affection in both readings for today. The Song of Songs pours out some of the lovely, lyrical love-poetry written by King Solomon for his young bride from Egypt, describing the overflowing emotions of love between them at the time of their nuptuals. In Luke’s account of the Visitation we sense the mutual spiritual friendship bonding Mary with Elizabeth, as they ponder how God has blessed both of them, and through them so many others who would come live life more fully because of John the Baptist and of Jesus.
 
Sharing faith is not always easy. We need to share what we have felt, and it can benefit both ourselves and those with whom we share our spiritual experience. Mary and Elizabeth felt the saving grace of God surging through their lives — and were not afraid to encourage each other by saying so. Many of us were raised on the principle that ‘God helps those who help themselves’ and that displays of need are out of place in the pursuit of holiness. We need to make our own what Elizabeth said so well, namely that God is a gracious God, and that it is a blessing to believe in God’s graciousness.
 
Lord, help us to always develop an intimate relationship with you that we may recognise the works of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Amen.
 
Good morning and do have a wonderful day. God loves you.
