Break forth into joy

Springtime and new life are here in the persons of Jesus and John. The Holy Spirit inspires Elizabeth to know that Our Lady is pregnant. More, Elizabeth recognises the long-promised Saviour, in the Babe Mary carries. “Whence is this that the mother of my lord should come to me.” As these two women look forward to the birth of their sons, let’s look to the liturgical celebration of Christ’s birth, now only a few days away. Let’s prepare to break forth into joy. Rejoice ... the Lord is at hand.”
