For when His Mother said unto Him, “They have no wine,” He answered, “What
have I to do with thee?” He had had to do with her for thirty years. She had borne
Him, she had nursed Him, she had taught Him. And when He had reached twelve
voice, and said unto Him, Blessed is the womb that bare Thee, and the paps
which Thou hast sucked,” He answered, “Yea rather, blessed are they that hear
the word of God and keep it.” Nor is there any token recorded in the Gospels of
