DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Relationships” – Faith: in today’s Gospel, when Mary was looking for Jesus, He said, “Anyone who does the Will of My Father in heaven is my brother, sister and mother.”  The deepest desires and joy of our hearts is to do the Father’s Will.  This is deeper than loving our family.  Ponder on this Truth.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 12:46-50

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. Someone said to him: ‘Your mother and brothers are standing outside and want to speak to you.’

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.’
