Church of Visitation - Israel Tours

Built to commemorate the visit Mary made to Elizabeth, her cousin while they were pregnant with Jesus and John the Baptist

Your tour to the Holy Land should include important sites such as the Church of the Visitation, which was built to commemorate the visit Mary made to Elizabeth, her cousin while they were pregnant with Jesus and John the Baptist. Located in Ein Kerem, this is also the site where Mary sang her song of praise, the Magnificat. If you visit this church on your Israel tour, you will see how celebrated her song is in just about every language on the tiles of the church.

Luke Chapter 1: 39-56

39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the voice of your greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” 46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden. For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed; 49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on those who fear him from generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts, 52 he has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree; 53 he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent empty away. 54 He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, 55 as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his posterity forever.” 56 And Mary remained with her about three months, and returned to her home.
