WOMAN from the crowd cried out. . . “Blessed is the one that bore you. . . . ” He replied, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” Lk. 11:27-28
REFLECTION: Mary is blessed most of all because she heard the word of God and carried it out. She preserved the Truth and her mind even more than she preserved the Flesh and her womb.
PRAYER: O Mary, you are the first among the believers in Christ. Increase my faith in your Divine Son. Make it so alive that it will shine out even in the littlest thing I do.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and forever shall be.
World without end. Amen! Alleluia! Alleluia!
