Matthew 12: 46-50

In Jesus’ time obligation to family was determined by blood relationship. In this passage Jesus turns the culture’s understanding about family upside down. Spiritual relationship trumps blood relationships. Family consists of those who do the will of God.

Being an active part of a parish family is a perfect example to me of Jesus’ teaching about true family. I pray this day for my family in faith.
