the will of God

January 29, 2019 6:00 am

“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.’” (MK 3: 34-35)

How amazing are these words; we are called Our Lord’s relatives: “is my brother and sister and mother.” And the only condition is: “whoever does the will of God.” The will of God is so simple—to love each other. We know it is simple, but not easy. It is about changing ourselves, not our spouses or other, respecting others in their differences, being a gift of self not a demander, protecting our true identity, listening carefully to others and implementing it in every step in our daily routine; not easy, but still so simple.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
