P6037098ac Oil Painting of the Visitation of Pregnant Mary
From wikipedia: Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth, they are both pregnant; Mary is pregnant with Jesus and Elizabeth is pregnant with John the Baptist; Mary left Nazareth immediately after the Annunciation and went to Hebron, South of Jerusalem, to attend her cousin Elizabeth; Catholics believe that the purpose of this visit was to bring divine grace to both Elizabeth and her unborn child; Even though he was still in his mother's womb, John became aware of the presence of his Divine Saviour; He leapt for joy as he was cleansed from original sin and filled with divine grace; Elizabeth also responded and recognised the presence of Jesus; Thus Mary, now for the first time, exercised her function as mediatrix between God and man, Elizabeth remarks to Mary: "And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed are You thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb; And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy; And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord (Luke 1:42–45)." It is also at this point, in response to Elizabeth's remark, that Mary proclaims the Magnificat (My soul doth magnify the Lord), Luke 1:46–55, for which reason this canticle had traditionally been reserved for this feast day; In the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, the Visitation is the second Joyful Mystery of the Rosary.France Champagne-Ardenne Region Aube Department Troyes Capital Cathedral St Pierre-St Paul.
