Scriptural Rosary
The Visitation of Mary
Mary Mother Of Jesus

"And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth."
-Luke 1:39

Catholic Rosary Myteries On Visitation of Mary, the most touching example of "love thy neighbor" Matthew 19:19 is the Bible account of Mary visiting her cousin Elizabeth.

During the Annunciation the Archangel Gabriel tells Mary that Elizabeth in her old age is also expecting a baby.

Mary disregards herself and immediately goes to the aid of her cousin who is in need. Following is the exact Bible text of the Visitation of Mary:

  • "And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda. And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.
  • And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art 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 behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.
  • And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
  • He hath showed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy: As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.
  • And Mary abode with her about three months; and she returned to her own house." -Luke 1:39-56

Mary knew Elizabeth needed her assistance. From this story, The Visitation of Mary, you can learn two things.

  • First, that Mary will promptly assist you in your times of need.
  • And secondly, that you should imitate Mary's example here by serving others.
