July 2, 2014, Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary within the Octave of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Commemoration of Saints Processus and Martinian:
Today is the magnificent feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to her cousin, Saint Elizabeth, and her preborn Divine Son’s preborn Precursor, Saint John the Baptist. Magnificat.
This date, July 2, marks the end of the period of Our Lady’s Visitation, which began on April 2, lasting until the day after the octave day of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. Our Lady’s perfect Charity for her cousin and her Divine Son’s Precursor should prompt us to perform the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy at all times, making sure as well to proclaim the Holy Name of Mary, she whom all generations are duty bound to call blessed, as the Mother of God who made possible our salvation by her perfect fiat to the will of God the Father at the Annunciation and who is the Queen of Heaven and on earth, the very Immaculate Conception who prays for us now and at the hour of our deaths.
The promised commentary on the recent decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America will be published on Friday, July 4, 2014. Other writing projects are taking priority right now. Thank you for your patience.
A blessed Feast of the Visitation to you all.
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saints Processus and Martinian, pray for us.
