Dear Friend in the Lord,

God’s Will: In today’s Gospel, Mary did not comprehend what Jesus her Son said, “Anyone who does the Will of My Father in heaven is My brother, sister, mother.”  Ponder on, “God’s Will and Ways are often beyond our understanding, especially during the pains and trials of life.  Do we have a deep trust and love for Jesus?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 12:46-50

Jesus was speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers appeared; they were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him.

But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’
