Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 8:19-21.
The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd.
He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you.”
He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”
Reflection: Jesus has simply emphasized His call to those who hear the Word of God and act on it into a Holy family. We are encouraged by Jesus to develop an affinity of oneness irrespective of differences in Surnames or tribe. We are all brothers and sisters under God.
