19. St. Peter and Paul Church, East Harling, East window, Visitation, 1480.
In light of the Lordís will, anything is possible.  When the angel Gabriel descends upon Mary to announce her conception, he informs her that the miracle is not hersí alone.  Her relative Elizabeth, thought to be barren, is also with child.  Mary travels hastily to the town of Judah to visit Elizabeth.  Upon hearing her greeting, Elizabeth is so filled with the Holy Spirit that her child, later to be known as John the Baptist, jumps in her womb.  Dressed in her maternity clothes with a laced front and veiled under a hood, Elizabeth blesses Mary for believing in the word of the Lord.  The two women share in the news of their motherhood, both knowing that they are guided by divine Providence.
