 “Happy the womb that bore you and the breasts you sucked!”

Luke 11:27-28

Jesus points out that Mary was not blessed only because she carried and nurtured Jesus, but the most important thing was she lived out God’s word -as we are called to do.

It is easy to underestimate what we have and how we use it, to overlook or minimise our blessings- including the gift of Jesus himself and the words of wisdom we receive from God’s Word. What part of God’s message can we share with others today or put into practice? Jesus tells us that this is the true blessing, to live out this message of love.
