9 in those days, Mary went to the mountainous region, addressing, hastily, a city of Judea. 40 entered the House of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the infant leaped in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 With a great shout, exclaimed: "blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb!" 43 How do I deserve that the mother of my Lord should come to see me? 44 as soon as your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. 45 "blessed one who believed, because will be fulfilled what you promised".
We see in today's Gospel the meeting of two women who are pregnant without it was possible. On the other hand, Isabel, elderly and barren, and another Mary, Virgin. The old woman representing the old testament, because it will be the mother of the last Prophet of the old Covenant. The Virgin representing the New Testament, because it will be the mother of the one in your blood will seal the new and everlasting Covenant between God and men. We see the complementarity between the two alliances and we also see in Mary the essence of evangelizing mission: to bring Jesus to all people so that they can recognize it and embrace it. CNBB
