A blessed feast of the Visitation to one and all!  I have always considered this a pro-life feast, when two saintly women, each bearing two very holy children, in fact, the holiest, met in a joyful and spiritual reunion.  As Pope Benedict has pointed out, the New Covenant begins with the declaration Kaire!, Rejoice!, as the Angel Gabriel announced to the Virgin that she would bear the Messiah, who would save His people from their sins.   Hence, the Greek for the Gospel, eu-angellion, the ‘good news’.
