Meeting of the Wombs: On the Feast of the Visitation

Concerning the visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to St. Elizabeth. In honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Elizabeth; and in honour of the Word and John the Baptist as babe.


O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.
When summit of old
Met summit of new.

O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.
When darkened face was
Visited by kissing dawn.

O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.
When God’s-slave mothers
Set free by God’s Mother.


O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.
When shadow cave was
Flooded with valley's grace.

O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.
When babe John leapt
In hiding Babes Presence.

O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.
When every babe leapt
With joy of Salvation.

O happy day!
The meeting of the babes.

O happy day!
The meeting of the wombs.

O happy day!
