In illo tempore:
loquente Jesu ad turbas,
extollens vocem quaedam mulier de turba dixit:
Beatus venter, qui te portavit,
et ubera, quae suxisti.
At ille dixit: Quinimo beati,
qui audiunt verbum Dei, et custodiunt illud.
c.f. Luke 11:27-28

At that time:
while Jesus was speaking to the crowds,
a certain woman from the crowd, raising her voice said:
Blessed is the womb that bore thee
and the breasts that thou hast sucked.
But he said: Nay, rather, blessed
are those who hear the word of God and keep it.
