Who’s missing from the account of the visitation?: ----- The person who accompanied Mary on the walk to the hill country of Judea! Ann and Joachim, being good and protective parents, wouldn’t let their only child, a young teenage girl, go it alone. The person would have to a strong male in case they ran into robbers or had some emergency. Joseph wouldn’t do because, although engaged to Mary, they hadn’t lived together in his house, an obvious sign they were married. And that would not be, as it were, kosher. Who would they get?
