Visitation (Mary Visiting Elizabeth) – Bloch


     In this beautiful depiction of the Visitation by Carl Bloch, the elderly Elizabeth stands at the top of the steps of her house, with arms joyfully spread wide, welcoming the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady, with a faint halo above her head, looks up at her cousin, listening to the divinely inspired greeting: "Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb!" (Lk. 1:42).
