QUOTATION: The Visitation

Elizabeth was the first to hear the voice but her son John was the first to feel the effects of grace...She sensed the coming of Mary, he the coming of the Lord — the woman knew the woman, the child knew the child. The women speak of grace while inside them grace works on their babies. And by a double miracle the women prophesy under the inspiration of their unborn children.
