Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: Luke 2:41-52
"I must be in my Father's house."
In today's Gospel, Jesus proclaimed His Father as the center of His life and asked Mary and us to do the same, that we must be in the Lord's house.
Jesus' intention to be in His Father's home doesn't mean rejection of Mary and Joseph but means prioritizing His relationship with God. Growing up spiritually involves leaving our comfort zones and letting go of what is familiar.
It is in the Father's house that we can know ourselves and are identified as His beloved children. We are also called to grow and be at our Father's house.
