DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Relationships – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus affirms that the greatest Truth and the deepest blessings are knowing that we are children of God our Father, who loves us totally and unconditionally. This love embraces God’s Compassion, Care, Protection and Guiding Light; and are beyond our human relationships.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
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.’
