Tuesday of the Third Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Mk 3:31-35
Jesus 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.”
Gospel's Commentary
Today, Jesus’ family is going to visit Him. A crowd was sitting around Him: His Apostles, disciples and friends. They are so numerous that poor Virgin Mary cannot even get in. They told Him... —The Lord’s response fills us with joy: if I Iove the will of the Father, then Jesus loves me as a brother. Even more so: He will love me as He loves His own mother! Oh my God, how much You love me!
