redefining family

Jan 29, 2019

Take a moment to read today’s gospel reading, then you might like to take three minutes to listen to my homily from this morning, a reflection on today’s gospel.

The mother and brothers of Jesus arrived and, standing outside, sent in a message asking for him. A crowd was sitting round him at the time the message was passed to him, ‘Your mother and brothers and sisters are outside asking for you.’ He replied, ‘Who are my mother and my brothers?’ And looking round at those sitting in a circle about him, he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of God, that person is my brother and sister and mother.’

  1. I’m really enjoying the listen aspect of food for faith. I often access it first thing in the morning; before my eyes are focusing. Listening as I prepare for the day, I can ponder and reflect…hands free too!!!

    Abundant blessings Joanne
