What Does the Visitation Mean to Me in My Daily Life?

The Visitation in my daily life means being very attentive to the calls of God to be able to share the richness with the neediest, to listen, or simply to be with simple people. I am sharing this photo because the Visitation touches me deeply. Here, we are on our way to visit an old woman who has been bedridden for eight years. This experience revives the spirit of Mary when she rushes to her cousin’s home. Today, I went out in haste, like Mary, to be with the simple people. Also, through my apostolate, I am more attentive to this type of Visitation daily. It makes me enter the depth of what the person is sharing and leads me to a beautiful encounter. I am able to pray for these people and help them with what is within my reach. All these experiences make me revive my spring fountain to give them the freshness of unconditional love.
