Sermon on Luke 1:39-56 - The Magnificat

After Mary was informed by Gabriel of the miraculous conception of Jesus in her womb, she traveled to visit Elizabeth, perhaps at the suggestion of Gabriel himself. Perhaps, she needed a godly older woman, a dear friend, a close relative, an understanding person, with whom she could discuss the extraordinary and sacred things she had recently experienced. Perhaps she needed to go to someone who had also been miraculously blessed by God. At this point, who else could she talk to about her pregnancy, being a virgin? She could not even talk to Joseph yet?
