“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 8:21

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

"My mother and my brethren

are those who hear the word of God

and do it."

.

– Luke 8:21 (RSV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Imagine being able to share in Jesus’ life

as intimately as if we were members of His family.

.

If we follow Him,

listen to Him,

and, importantly, obey His Law and do His will,

we do become part of the Lord’s close family!

.

When we truly recognise Jesus as the Son of the Living God,

our bond with Him actually becomes much stronger

than that with our own natural family.

.

Our bond with Christ is fulfilled…when we do as He says.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Everyone who does the will of the Father,

that is to say, who obeys Him,

is a brother or sister of Christ,

because he is like Him who fulfilled the will of His Father.”

.

– St. Thomas

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Sweet Mary, Mother of God,

teach us to listen to your divine Son

and pray for us, that we may do His will.
