The babe leaped in her womb (Lk 1:42)

Just a quick post as there are many house duties this morning to be done...

The gospel today happens to be the same as yesterday's Gospel, so I would refer back to my short reflection on that Gospel.

However, I would also just put the text of the first reading down here, as this morning during mass it just struck me as a lovely text to meditate a bit upon:


Zep 3:14 Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The LORD has taken away the judgments against you, he has cast out your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall fear evil no more.
16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: "Do not fear, O Zion; let not your hands grow weak.
17 The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing
18 as on a day of festival. "I will remove disaster from you, so that you will not bear reproach for it.
