(St. Callistus I, Pope and Martyr)
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.” Lk_11:27-28
Jesus shows humility at a compliment and advice to take the glory from the person and place it on God. We are called, beloved, to be obedient to God and not to place anyone or anything above our love and worship of God. Go and do likewise!
