Daily Word Of God

Luke 11:27-28

As Jesus was speaking, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said, ‘Happy the womb that bore you and the breasts that you sucked!’

But he replied, ‘Still happier are those who hear the word of God and keep it!’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • God gives Mary the Mother of Jesus, the Motherhood of His divine Son.  Mary too is gifted with the divine gift of the grace of hearing the Word of God and keeping it faithfully throughout her life.


  • Jesus knew His Mother’s fidelity to God’s Will and loved Her deeply for Her fidelity, as He too is living His Father’s Will to the full.


  • When we live the Father’ Will, our lives will bear fruit that gives life to others and draw them closer to God.  This is the essence of our Christian faith; be faithful to the Father’s Will at all times.
