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: Mark 3: 31-35
Whoever does the will of God is brother and sister and mother to me
In the gospel, the crowd was informing Jesus that his mother and brothers are waiting outside. In reply, Jesus asked “Who are my mother and brother?” Jesus is asking the same question, inviting us to look beyond the biological family we have. Who are our other mother and brother surrounding us? Needing our words of affirmation, good deeds and genuine concern? As simple “how are you” can brighten and uplift someone’s day. Look outside and go beyond out of our comforts.
Mother Mary, teach us how to fulfill the will of God by doing good to our mother and brothers in Christ, members of God’s family.
