Dear Friend in the Lord,
Essence of Life: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that the essence of our living is to be obedient to His Father’s Will in heaven. All our family and other relationships are important, but our relationship with God is the essence of our living, as it empowers and gives us meaning, direction and hope to attain our eternal Joy in heaven.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus was speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers 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.’
