His relatives

January 20, 2018 6:00 am

“Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him,  for they said, ‘He is out of his mind.’” (MK 3: 20-21) 

Our Lord’s relatives didn’t accept His mission: “they set out to seize him, for they said, ‘He is out of His mind.’” How often even our relatives, unfortunately, don’t understand us when we go to the Programs. They called us selfish because we “prefer” to spend time alone, without our children. But we know how important our mission is. We can’t be good parents and good citizens when we are not good couples. First things first. 

“Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.” (Gospel Acclamation)
