Whoever does the will of God

“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) 

Unfortunately too often we think about doing “the will of God,” like doing something unpleasant when we need to force ourselves to do the thing we don’t like to do. But “the will of God” is very simple—God wants for us (and from us) only the most important thing: that we will love each other in the most amazing way. He wants us growing in love, being the best gift of self, always free, creative, and joyful. That kind of gift of self makes us like He is and makes us part of His family: “my brother and sister and mother.” 

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