“‘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)
“Rather” is for us, who can join only Our Lord’s spiritual family, but not for His mother, who belongs to Jesus’ earthly and spiritual family. She is blessed as a mother and as a disciple; Our Lady can teach us how to connect daily life, family life, and devotional life—never in opposition, but always in unity.
“Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
