مَريَمُ تَزُورُ زَكَرِيَّا وَألِيصَابَات
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا01/من 39-حتى45/وَفِي أثنَاءِ تِلْكَ الفَترَةِ، استَعَدَّتْ مَريَمُ وَأسرَعَتْ إلَى بَلدَةٍ فِي إقْلِيمِ يَهُوذَا الجَبَلِيِّ.  وَتَوَجَّهَتْ إلَى بَيْتِ زَكَرِيَّا، وَحَيَّتْ ألِيصَابَاتَ.  فَمَا إنْ سَمِعَتْ ألِيصَابَاتُ تَحِيَّتَهَا حَتَّى تَحَرَّكَ الطِّفلُ فِي بَطنِهَا. فَامتَلأتْ ألِيصَابَاتُ مِنَ الرُّوحِ القُدُسِ.  وَرَفَعَتْ صَوْتَهَا وَقَالَتْ: «لَقَدْ بَارَكَكِ اللهُ أكْثَرَ مِنْ كُلِّ النِّسَاءِ، وَمُبَارَكٌ أيْضًا الطِّفلُ الَّذِي سَتَلِدِينَهُ.  لَكِنْ مَا هَذَا الشَّرَفُ العَظِيمُ الَّذِي حَظِيتُ بِهِ حَتَّى تَأْتِيَ أُمُّ سَيِّدِي إلَيَّ؟ 44 لِأنَّهُ مَا إنْ وَصَلَ صَوْتُ تَحِيَّتِكِ إلَى أُذُنَيَّ، حَتَّى وَثَبَ الطِّفلُ بِفَرَحٍ فِي بَطنِي. فَمُبَارَكَةٌ أنْتِ لِأنَّكِ صَدَّقْتِ أنَّ مَا وَعَدَكِ بِهِ الرَّبُّ سَيَتَحَقَّقُ.»

 

Mary visits Zechariah and Elizabeth
Luke 01/39-45/And Mary arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judah, and entered into the house of Zacharias and saluted Elizabeth. And it came to pass, when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.
And she spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And why is it granted to me 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. And blessed is she that believed; for there shall be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”
