December 20th – Fourth Sunday of Advent

20Today’s Gospel

“‘Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb,’ (Luke 1:43).”

Daily Advent Reflection

Today we hear the account of the Visitation from Luke’s gospel. It is a familiar, yet deeply moving, account. We hear of Elizabeth’s reaction to Mary when she first realises that Mary is carrying Jesus in her womb; we also hear the reaction of Elizabeth’s unborn child.

It is through this extraordinary witness that we can appreciate the significance of what has happened.

Daily Advent Challenge

“I will spend some time today thinking about ways in which I can give greater witness to God through my words and actions.”

Teresa Keogh, Archdiocese of Southwark
