Ain Karem – The Visitation

From the church of S. John to that of the Visitation, there is a spring called the “Virgin Spring” by the pilgrims of the fourteenth century.
According to tradition, it was here that Mary met her cousin Elizabeth and sang a hymn of praise (the Magnificat), a song of gratitude to God.
“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; 
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; 
behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed”
