The Virgin Mary, pregnant with the infant Jesus, having heard at the Annunciation that her cousin Elizabeth was six months pregnant, left her home to visit her. At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth felt the infant St. John the Baptist leap in her womb. Mary then said the Magnificat (Luke 1:39-56).
