“When St. Elizabeth saw that the most blessed Virgin had come to visit her in her own house, not knowing how to thank her, and filled with humanity, she exclaimed: ‘And whence is this to me, that the Mother of my Lord should visit me?’ But how could this be? we may ask. Did not St. Elizabeth already know that not only Mary, but also Jesus, had entered her house? Why then does she say the she is unworthy to receive the Mother, and not rather, that she is unworthy to receive the Son, who had come to visit her? Ah, yes, it was that the saint knew full when that when Mary comes she brings Jesus, and therefore it was sufficient to thank the Mother without naming the Son.” -St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church
