May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

While Jesus was speaking to the crowds, his mother and his brothers appeared outside, wishing to speak with him. Someone told him, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, asking to speak with you.” But he said in reply to the one who told him, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

Jesus acknowledges that we are His brothers and sisters – if we follow the word of God. We are children of God and must live up to His expectations. Our Lord asks us to spread His word and follow His command. Are you a child of God?

 Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your Fatherhood. I ask for the grace and knowledge to do your perfect will. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.

Lord, show us your mercy and love.
