Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it

“While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, ‘Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed.’ He replied, ‘Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.’” (LK 11: 27-28)

Sometimes we think: I wish I could live in Jesus times–everything would be simpler. Our Lord knew about our “idealistic visions,” and He promised: “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.

“Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
