Rejoice in the Lord, you just!-- Psalm 97:12
Mass readings: Joel 4:12-21 / Luke 11:27-28
Jesus' words to the woman in today's Gospel are encouraging for all of us. He's not saying Mary isn't blessed for being His mother but He's stressing that any of us -- including you and me -- can be blessed if we: 1. ''Hear the word of God.'' And 2. ''Observe it.''
How can I better hear it? Paying attention at Mass. Reading Scripture. Slowing down when I pray. Spending time in the adoration chapel. And on and on. How can I better observe it? By living the life God wants me to live, day by day. By becoming the person God created me to become, day by day. The closer I get to that, the more blessed, the more joyful, I'll be.
Prayer: Holy Mary, Mother of God, help me grow in holiness today.
