DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Divine Mystery: In today’s Gospel, while Jesus was Teaching, His mother came to look for Him.  He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who do the Will of God.  In saying this, Jesus revealed His identity as the Messiah, but many still reject Him.  Ponder on, “Do we live our true identity as: a child of God, a disciple of Jesus, and a temple of the Holy Spirit?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 3:31-35

The mother and brothers of Jesus arrived and, standing outside, sent in a message asking for him. A crowd was sitting round him at the time the message was passed to him, ‘Look, your mother and brothers and sisters are outside asking for you.’

He replied, ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’ And looking at those sitting in a circle round him, he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of God, that person is my brother and sister and mother.’
