“Anyone who does the will of God, that person is my brother and sister and mother.’’
We must never stop talking about Jesus. His name should forever be at the tip of our tongues and on our lips. Yet many of us claim to be followers and family of Jesus simply because we speak of him and call for him.
Today Jesus is teaching us that we must more than just speak, we must do. Be doers! He shows us that “anyone who does the will of God” is his true family. This is why we can turn to Mary, the Mother of God. She is truly an example of doing God’s will. She was literally the first person to become family with God when she said “be it done unto me according to thy word”.
Immaculate Mary, help us to be doers of God’s will just as you were when you said yes. We want to be the family of Jesus too. We know the journey will be difficult but help us to make the first steps towards your Son. Holy Mary, Pray for us.
