Reflection for October 10, Saturday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time: Luke 11:27-28

Gospel: Luke 11:27-28
While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed.” He replied, “Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”

Reflection:
Are you properly taking care of your mother? Many of us today pamper our mother with material things. But when a mother is old and already a member of the senior citizens club she is not anymore concerned with material things. She is more concerned with the love and care that she will receive from her children.
A mother will never say to her children to give her love and care rather than material things. Yet she will greatly appreciate it if she would be given love and care by her children love and care that she richly deserves. Let us not forget that our mothers carried us in their womb for nine long months and we gained nourishment from their milk as well.
In the gospel, a woman who is obviously an admirer of the Blessed Virgin Mary told Jesus: “Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed (Luke 11:27).” She perhaps said this to honor Mary for properly rearing Jesus.
Yet Jesus gave the more profound honor to His Mother Mary by saying: “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it (Luke 11:27).” For the Blessed Mother heard the word of God, she treasured it in her heart and observed it.
How is your relationship with your mother? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
