[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] 
Luk 1:5 During the time when Herod was king of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly order of Abijah. His wife's name was Elizabeth; she also belonged to a priestly family.
Luk 1:6 They both lived good lives in God's sight and obeyed fully all the Lord's laws and commands.
Luk 1:7 They had no children because Elizabeth could not have any, and she and Zechariah were both very old.
Luk 1:8 One day Zechariah was doing his work as a priest in the Temple, taking his turn in the daily service.
Luk 1:9 According to the custom followed by the priests, he was chosen by lot to burn incense on the altar. So he went into the Temple of the Lord,
Luk 1:10 while the crowd of people outside prayed during the hour when the incense was burned.
Luk 1:11 An angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar where the incense was burned.
Luk 1:12 When Zechariah saw him, he was alarmed and felt afraid.
Luk 1:13 But the angel said to him, "Don't be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son. You are to name him John.
