Mary and Elisabeth Rejoice Together

Peace be upon you,
dear cousin. May you be strong and blessed. Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this, that
the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice
of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped
in my womb for joy. My soul doth magnify the Lord,
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low
estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth
all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done
to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that
fear him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with his
arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination
of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from
their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with
good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath holpen his servant
Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; as he spake to our
fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
