Reflections with Fr. Mark
Dear Parishioners,

Jesus broadens our understanding of “family” in our blood relationships to a larger realm of becoming brothers and sisters as we relate to all those who are seeking to live out God’s will in their lives. 

Our reading today is not a rejection of our earthly family but an affirmation that there are more members to “the family” than we could ever conceive.  Do you understand this?  We must understand this to let go of the “my or mine” in our ecclesial journey to an understanding of “our and us” in our worship gatherings, meetings, ministries, etc.  

There is no such thing as “my mass, my Jesus, my church” in the Kingdom of God.  Jesus is not an exclusive commodity to be possessed, but a relationship with a person that is to be shared with others – our other family members.

Is Jesus a member of my family?  If so, do I introduce Him to others?

Be assured of our prayers for you each day as we continue our journey together and apart.

Blessings,

Fr. Mark
