Thoughts are random. First, about today's Gospel:

It is a feminine trait to listen, to receive, to watch. Perhaps that is why more women pray than men. Perhaps it is why among contemplatives there are more women than men-it is the 'feminine' which listens and waits. It is a feminine trait, also, to see, to observe. The wine has run out. Mary notices, and being a woman she has a practical mind.
(Basil Hume, Searching for God)
DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU.
