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, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
Oh! My Infant Jesus, your most blessed mother who, during the very days when you were conceived in her womb, hurried to her aunt knowing that the barren and aged aunt was in the sixth month of pregnancy. In the presence of the baby Jesus, who was only a few days old in the womb of the mother, John the Baptist who was only six months old in Elizabeth’s womb leaped for joy. Let this world know what Elizabeth proclaimed out of divine inspiration that the embryo in Mary’s womb, which was a few days old was Jesus and that Mary was the Mother of God !
