Commentary on the Gospel of
In response to the woman who praised the Mother of Jesus, Jesus says not only Mary is blessed, but we all have the chance to be blessed. For sure Mary, Mother of Jesus was blessed, not only because she was his mother but also because of accepting the Word of God in her heart (Luke 2:51). Now Jesus offers us the possibility of becoming blessed like Mary. What should we do for that? “…hear the Word of God and keep it…” Reading the Word of God or listening to it is not just for its own sake but it should be for becoming ‘blessed in the presence of God’.
