09-22-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 22, 2015
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.”  Lk_8:19-21

Jesus isn’t denouncing his family in this saying, rather, He is expanding it to include everyone who listens, believes and follows the Word of God.  This is our spiritual family as well, beloved.  If you ever had the occasion to help someone in need, and got a blessing in return from them when it was all said and done, you would feel that warmth of knowing that you not only helped a stranger, but you helped a brother or sister in God’s love, in God’s family, in your own spiritual family.  And that’s pretty awesome!

Jesus said, Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.  Lk_11:28

Blessed are you, beloved!
