Luke 11:27's Blessed Ones

The woman in the crowd
Expressed,
In loud assertiveness,
A woman’s honor came
From womb and breast.
But Jesus didn’t think
That barren females
Had no worth.
Nor did he think that
Mary’s sole accomplishment
Was giving birth.

No hollow
Promise, his,
Merely for an ancient
Circumstance.
Women then and now
Who follow
Him can stand
With mother Mary
As recipients of
His divine
Acceptance.
