READING I: Song of Songs 2:8-14
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 33:2-3, 11-12, 20-21
GOSPEL: Luke 1:39-4
To compliment this, the gospel tells of the visitation and the joy of the two women as they await the birth of their children. Such is this time of waiting and joy. If we enter into it, we can experience some of the joy and delight this season brings. Let the longed for hope of Israel become the hope of our life and leave ourselves open to his touch this festive season!
