A Ministry

St. Bede refers to the Visitation of the Virgin Mary to Elizabeth as a ministry of humility.  The Mother of God visits her relative to care for her in her final month.  Mary travels in haste because she knows that Elizabeth and her son John are the first persons to acknowledge that Jesus is Lord.

Today, visit someone who is in need.  It is a tool of good works.  Maybe a personal visit, a phone call, or email, whatever way we visit and show care we acknowledge that Jesus is Lord.
