DG BookGospel: Luke 11:27-28
As Jesus was speaking, a woman spoke from the crowd and said to him, “Blessed
is the one who gave you birth and nursed you!” Jesus replied, “Truly blessed are
those who hear the word of God, and keep it as well.”

Reflect:

The “Human Placenta Project” has only begun to unravel for us amazing facts about human
life in the womb. The phenomenon of fetomaternal microchimerism informs us that not only
does the mother provide resources for the prenatal baby, but some fetal cells from the baby
pass through the placenta and enter mother’s circulation and become integrated with the
mother’s body and continue to function within the mother even after childbirth. In other words,
there is an ongoing relatedness between mother and the child at the intercellular level, each
carrying the other! Imagine what it implies for the Incarnation: That Mary carried the imprint of
Christ at the cellular level within her throughout. The woman in today’s gospel is right: Blessed
indeed was Mary who conceived, gave birth, and nursed Jesus! But as Jesus remarks, we are
blessed too: Given that in Incarnation God has eternally entered humanity at the cellular level,
we can anytime activate this belonging by listening to the word of God and doing it.
