Dear Friend in the Lord,
Fidelity to God’s Will: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed, “Anyone who does the Will of My Father in heaven, he or she is My brother, sister and mother.” Ponder on, “Our relationship with Jesus is at its deepest and most intimate level, if we are able to live and be faithful to the Father’s Will. Mary fulfilled the Father’s Will perfectly throughout her life.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus was speaking to the crowds when 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, he is my brother and sister and mother.’
