The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house. Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him. A crowd seated around him told him, “Your mother and your brothers and your sisters are outside asking for you.” But he said to them in reply, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking around at those seated in the circle he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”
This was not an insult to His Mother. Of course not, Our Lord is incapable of insult.
This is a gift for us. Our Lord proclaims that WE are His family. Everyone who believes, and obeys, is His family.
Before your feet hit the ground this morning, did you acknowledge that you are a brother, a sister, a mother of Jesus? We are all family members of the one Holy Family -
"you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;" 1 Pet 2:9
