Gospel: Mt 12:46-50

In those days, while Jesus was still speaking to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. Someonetold him “Look, your mother and your brothers are standing outside, waiting to speak to you”.

But he replied, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers!  For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother, and sister, and mother.”
