Luke 1:39-45

The Gospel passage for the 21st of December is when Mary goes to visit her cousin Elizabeth in Judah. Immediately as Elizabeth’s ears are filled with Mary’s greeting, the baby leaps in her womb. This is symbolic of being in the presence of the son of God. Even the infant in Elizabeth’s womb knows that this is the son of God and reacts by leaping in the womb of his mother. “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”-Elizabeth
