“Mary set out and went as quickly as she could.”
Mary is so important in this time of Advent. Her witness to carrying the child Jesus in her womb, protecting him, caring for him and loving him; are a living example of how we too need to love him. Nothing ever prevented Mary from being a woman on mission, a woman for others. We see this in her visit over the mountains to Elizabeth.
What mountains do I use as an excuse to carry out the personal mission that Jesus has given to me?
