22nd December 2018

Today’s gospel is very much a celebration of women’s ministry to women. In our reading, we have two expectant mothers getting together rather like modern mums-to-be having a ‘baby shower’. In this case, they are sharing joy and expectations against the odds. One is well past child-bearing age and the other is expecting a child outside wedlock. Not the most auspicious start to two precious lives and yet, even the unborn babies give testimony that this is the fulfilment of a very special promise. Perhaps we too can help others exceed their own expectations of themselves through a kind and affirming word.
