Commentary on the Gospel of
Truly, blessed are you Mary for you bore and nursed Jesus! But more than bearing and nursing Jesus, Mary filled her heart with the experience of the Divine. She pondered everything in her heart. Mary is teaching us to encounter Jesus, how to discover God in our experiences, how to uncover the divine in the midst of our confusion, in search for meaning. And that is to keep these things in our hearts; to ponder the Word, Jesus in our hearts. Only a heart who knows how to ponder and listen can make sense of the divine.
