The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him but were unable to join him because of the crowd. He was told, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and they wish to see you." He said to them in reply, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it."
Introductory Prayer: Lord, in this Jubilee Year of St. Paul, I turn to you with renewed zeal for the salvation of souls. I believe in you and your love for me. Teach me to live and spread the Catholic faith ardently. Increase my faith, hope, and love so that I may exclaim with St. Paul, “yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me” (Galatians 2:20).
Petition: Teach me your will, Lord Jesus, that I may be adopted into God’s family.
Conversation with Christ: Lord Jesus, teach me to be more attentive to God the Father’s will, so I may truly regard you as brother.
Resolution: Today, for love of God, I will do something to build a family relationship as Christ would.
