This week's Gospel & Reflection Question

The Fourth Sunday of Advent

Cycle C


Reading I   Matthew 5:1-4a  

Reading II  Hebrews 10:5-10






Luke 1:39-45

Mary set out
and traveled to the hill country in haste
to a town of Judah,
where she entered the house of Zechariah
and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting,
the infant leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
cried out in a loud voice and said,
"Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And how does this happen to me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
Blessed are you who believed
that what was spoken to you by the Lord
would be fulfilled."


Question of the Week:


Just as Mary and Elizabeth shared each other's joy, to whom might you reach out as a spiritual friend,
pointing out where God is working in your lives?
