Jesse Tree - December 20, 2020 - Day 22
Sunday, December 20 (Fourth Sunday of Advent)
...Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among
women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb...” Luke 1:41-42
Mary travels to visit her cousin Elizabeth, who has conceived a child in old age
through a miracle. The child in her womb, John the Baptist, leaps with joy when
Mary, pregnant with Jesus, arrives. Our ornament today celebrates the
motherhood shared by these women. The story can be found in Luke 1:39-56.
