If you are told that you will be the next prime minister in a few days, would you care about a friend who bought a new house and needs your help moving?. It seems that Virgin Mary just did that. She went to Elisabeth, although she was told she would be the Most High’s mother. Moreover, she went through that journey despite being in her first trimester. When my wife was pregnant with our first baby, she received a lot of “advice”; to rest, not to carry stuff, etc. Obviously, Virgin Mary wanted to serve her aged cousin rather than look after herself; what a selfless act of love!. This morning I heard a talk on finding meaning in life. And to do so, one needs to look outside themselves and care for others.
If you are interested in more quotes on Virgin Mary, you can find them in Mary and the Fathers of the Church on Amazon in both in Kindle and paperback formats.
