Lk 11:27-28 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.”
Jesus is not disrespecting HIS Mother. HE is teaching Truth. Our value does not come from another person. No individual can determine if we are blessed. A creature cannot decide the dignity of another creature. We have value BECAUSE of GOD. We are blessed BECAUSE of GOD. We have dignity BECAUSE of GOD.
“Rather, BLESSED are those who hear the word of GOD and observe it.”
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
