The Art of Visiting

THE LITURGICAL YEAR begins with the visitation of the Archangel Gabriel to Mary to give her the good news that she has been chosen by God to be the mother of the Messiah. Mary then made the long journey to visit her cousin Elizabeth, who was to give birth to St. John the Baptist, chosen by God to announce Jesus as he began his ministry. What joyful news, but each one of us can be that “joyful news” each time we visit someone who seldom gets a visitor. Did you know that in such a large city as Toronto with millions of people, you can be all alone? People today have no time to live happy lives because our lives have become too busy. Never be too busy to bring comfort and happiness to others by visiting them.

Мистецтво відвідування

ЛІТУРГІЙНИЙ РІК розпочинається відвідуванням архангела Гавриїла Пречистої Діви Марії, щоб сповістити їй про те, що вона обрана Богом бути матір’ю Месії. Потім Марія вирушила в довгу подорож, щоб відвідати свою родичку Єлизавету, яка мала народити святого Івана Хрестителя, вибраного Богом, щоб сповістити про Ісуса, коли він почав своє служіння. Яка радісна новина, але кожен із нас може бути цією «радісною новиною» кожного разу, коли ми відвідуємо когось, хто рідко приймає відвідувачів. Чи знаєте ви, що в такому великому місті, як Торонто, де проживають мільйони людей, ви можете залишитися на самоті? У сучасних людей немає часу жити щасливим життям, тому що наше життя стало занадто зайнятим. Ніколи не будьте надто зайняті, щоб приносити утішення і щастя іншим, відвідуючи їх.
