When the crowd says that his family is summoning him from outside the crowded building, Jesus answers with a shocking statement: ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers? Look, here (these people seated around me) are my mother and my brothers. Whoever does God’s will is my brother, sister and mother.’
It's good news for those inside the house, who seek to identify with Jesus and his message. It’s also good news for Mark’s earliest readers who found themselves estranged from their biological families (compare Mark 10:28-30). Bad news, however, for his relatives on the outside, and for others with high regard for customary notions of honour and social stability.
Jesus redefines the criteria for who constitutes his true family.
Have a blessed week.

  • Thresholds of Hope : the Vicariate for Adult Formation - another wonderful tool when proclaiming the good news of God's grace to all. St John Henry Newman believed that the lay faithful were to take a full part in the life of the Church, to be confident in expressing their Catholic Faith and willing to share its beauty with others. Hope you find this resource useful; more here https://thresholdsofhope.co.uk/
