The Hour of Lauds: Visitation

It was with haste, Luke's Gospel tells us, that Mary went to her kinswoman Elizabeth.  Finding help and blessing in Elizabeth's home, in her hands, in her words, Mary brings forth praise to the God who overturns the ways of the world.  In this season, in this song of the world made new, we remember: The powerful brought down from their thrones, she sang; the lowly lifted up; the hungry filled with good things.
