We see God’s kindness in how Mary is told about becoming pregnant with Jesus - she asks how it will be possible, like Zechariah did, and where he was struck dumb for lack of faith, Mary is given an answer. Perhaps because her news was slightly more terrifying! Love that she and Elizabeth share the joy and are the first people to be filled with the Holy Spirit in Luke’s gospel.
