Galatians 3:22-29 (Douay-Rheims Challoner text)

But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise, by the faith of Jesus Christ, might be given to them that believe. But before the faith came, we were kept under the law shut up, unto that faith which was to be revealed. Wherefore the law was our pedagogue in Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after the faith is come, we are no longer under a pedagogue. For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus.  For as many of you as have been baptized in Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ’s, then are you the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise.

Galatas 3:22-29 (Biblia Sacra Juxta Vulgatam Clementinam)

Sed conclusit Scriptura omnia sub peccato, ut promissio ex fide Jesu Christi daretur credentibus. Prius autem quam veniret fides, sub lege custodiebamur conclusi in eam fidem quæ revelanda erat. Itaque lex pædagogus noster fuit in Christo, ut ex fide justificemur. At ubi venit fides, jam non sumus sub pædagogo. Omnes enim filii Dei estis per fidem, quæ est in Christo Jesu. Quicumque enim in Christo baptizati estis, Christum induistis. Non est Judæus, neque Græcus : non est servus, neque liber : non est masculus, neque femina. Omnes enim vos unum estis in Christo Jesu. Si autem vos Christi, ergo semen Abrahæ estis, secundum promissionem hæredes

Gospel According St. Luke 11:27-28 (Ronald Knox Translation)

When he spoke thus, a woman in the multitude said to him aloud, Blessed is the womb that bore you, the breast which you have sucked. And he answered. Shall we not say. Blessed are those who hear the word of God, and keep it?

Evangelium Secundum Lucam 11:27-28 (Biblia Sacra Juxta Vulgatam Clementinam)

Factum est autem, cum hæc diceret : extollens vocem quædam mulier de turba dixit illi : Beatus venter qui te portavit, et ubera quæ suxisti. At ille dixit : Quinimmo beati, qui audiunt verbum Dei et custodiunt illud.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 791

The body’s unity does not do away with the diversity of its members: “In the building up of Christ’s Body there is engaged a diversity of members and functions. There is only one Spirit who, according to his own richness and the needs of the ministries, gives his different gifts for the welfare of the Church.” The unity of the Mystical Body produces and stimulates charity among the faithful: “From this it follows that if one member suffers anything, all the members suffer with him, and if one member is honored, all the members together rejoice.” Finally, the unity of the Mystical Body triumphs over all human divisions: “For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Catechismum Catholicae Ecclesiae 791

Unitas corporis diversitatem non abolet membrorum: « In aedificatione corporis Christi diversitas viget membrorum et officiorum. Unus est Spiritus, qui varia Sua dona, secundum divitias Suas atque ministeriorum necessitates ad Ecclesiae utilitatem dispertit ». Unitas corporis mystici inter fideles producit et fovet caritatem: « Unde si quid patitur unum membrum, compatiuntur omnia membra; sive si unum membrum honoratur, congaudent omnia membra ». Unitas denique corporis Christi de omnibus humanis divisionibus est victrix: « Quicumque enim in Christum baptizati estis, Christum induistis: non est Iudaeus neque Graecus, non est servus neque liber, non est masculus et femina; omnes enim vos unus estis in Christo Iesu » (Gal 3,27-28).

Notes on Galatians 3:22-29 (Douay-Rheims Challoner text)

22 “Hath concluded all under sin”… that is, hath declared all to be under sin, from which they could not be delivered but by faith in Jesus Christ, the promised seed.

24 “Pedagogue”… That is, schoolmaster, conductor, or instructor.

28 “Neither Jew”… That is, no distinction of Jew, etc.

Notes on St. Luke 11:27-28 (Haydock Bible Commentary)

Ver. 28. Menounge, imo vero, yes indeed. Our Saviour does not here wish to deny what the woman had said, but rather to confirm it: indeed how could he deny, as Calvin impiously maintained, that his mother was blessed? By these words, he only wishes to tell his auditors what great advantage they might obtain by attending to his words. For the blessed Virgin, as St. Augustine says, was more happy in having our Saviour in her heart and affections, than in having conceived him in her womb. (Tirinus)
