Blessed are those who hear the word of God
and observe it. Lk 11:28

God created man in the image and likeness of God. The word of God is that image and likeness which reflect God on this Earth.  If  we live the word of God , we reflect God on this Earth. In today’s Gospel reading Jesus the word made flesh gives the title of Blessed to those who live the Word of God.

The Church titles Blessed to a person who lived the life in the Word ,before declaring him or her as Saint. We need not do many things in our life than to live as per the Word of God and become living Saints on this Earth like Mother Mary and other disciples  of Jesus.
