Mary Visits Elizabeth

Submitted by on Sunday, 20 December 2009No Comment


The fourth Sunday of Advent Year C gives us the picture of Mary visiting Elizabeth.  The Church is like Mary, bringing Christ to those who await Him.  Below is a mindmap that relates the reading from Hebrews 10:5-10 to Luke’s narrative of the Visitation (click on the picture for a better look).



Hebrews 10:5-10
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
5Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith: Sacrifice and oblation thou wouldest not: but a body thou hast fitted to me:
6Holocausts for sin did not please thee.
7Then said I: Behold I come: in the head of the book it is written of me: that I should do thy will, O God.
8In saying before, Sacrifices, and oblations, and holocausts for sin thou wouldest not, neither are they pleasing to thee, which are offered according to the law.
9Then said I: Behold, I come to do thy will, O God: he taketh away the first, that he may establish that which followeth.
10In the which will, we are sanctified by the oblation of the body of Jesus Christ once.
