Not Mary but the Word of God

Here a woman tries to give “adoration” to Mary. The Response of Jesus is our response. Don’t adore her, adore God. We see how Jesus interjects this attempt to give glory and honor to someone other than God. Jesus says rather than Mary being blessed; blessed are those who hear God’s word and do it.

Luke 11:27 As he said these things, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” Luke 11:28 But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
