2. The Visitation of Virgin Mary to Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56)

At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women,and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Reflection: Sport teams can be like a family. Think of a teammate who has become a trusted confidante, as close as a brother or sister. Like Mary and Elizabeth, in these close relationships, we can encourage each other, be there for one another in good times and times of challenge. This love for our teammates is reflective of God’s unconditional love for us. Express to a special teammate that s/he is “blessed.”
