Jesus replied, «Surely blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it as well».

Today an exultant woman cheers the "mother" of Jesus: through sheer enthusiasm! He, with a more calm tone, seems to delay the situation... Actually, Jesus Christ goes to the point: He praises the docility to the will of God. And in this matter Holy Mary is unbeatable. No one like Her knows God’s Heart! No one like Her has identified with the Will of God!

- "Here is the slave of the Lord": this answer runs through our history and is transforming the destiny of humanity.
