Action and Contemplation with Mary and Elizabeth

The Visitation sketched by Charles de Foucauld

In what peace, what recollection, Mary went to and lent herself to everything! How the most commonplace things were divinized by her—for she remained ever in adoration of the Gift of God!—yet that did not hinder her from spending herself externally when there was question of putting into practice charity. The Gospel tells us that Mary quickly made way to the hill country of Judah and greeted Elizabeth. Never did the unspeakable vision which she contemplated within herself diminish her exterior charity!
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity (1880–1906)
