Jesus Stories

Mary Visits Elizabeth

Elizabeth was Mary's cousin.

Elizabeth was married to Zacharias.

They were very old people.

God had promised Zacharias a son.

The angel told Mary the wonderful news of her cousin, "Soon Elizabeth will have a son."

Mary made the long journey to visit her cousin.

When Mary arrived, she didn't have to tell Elizabeth her news.

Elizabeth said to her, "You are blessed among women and blessed is the child you will have.  I am honored that the mother of my Lord visits me."

Mary stayed with Elizabeth for three months.

She helped her in anyway she could.

She cooked and cleaned and worked very hard.

How do you think Elizabeth knew?

Wasn't Mary nice to help her old cousin?

Did you ever have an angel visit you?

Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

 Let's Pray
Dear God,
Help me to not be selfish with my time or my things.
Help me to want to help others.
Help me to notice when they might need help.
Help me to know what I can do for them.

Can you think of a better prayer?

This story can be found in 
Luke 1:39-56

Write to me, please.
