Featured Saint 3/1/22

St Elizabeth and St Zechariah

Claim to fame: Informed they would be parents of John the Baptist who would lead the way for people to follow Christ though they were of advanced age.

Quote: “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb! But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” (Lk 1:42-45)

Fun fact: Zechariah is the first person in the NT to speak to an angel (chronologically)
