Mary and Elizabeth were cousins and pregnant at the same time. Elizabeth carrying Jesus’s cousin John and Mary carrying Jesus. Imagine their bellies bumping as they embrace.
Mary embodies girl power. She trusts God. She believes in her own agency. She understands and tells the world that it starts inside of us.
In this episode, Melissa and Bishop Wright have a conversation about Mary and Elizabeth. They discuss the faithful visit they shared that day in Judea. They discuss their faithfulness to God, their joyful songs, the Magnificat, and what this means to us as we prepare for the birth of Jesus. Listen in for the full conversation.
