While Jesus was still speaking to the crowds, his mother and his brothers appeared outside, wishing to speak with him. (Someone told him, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, asking to speak with you.") But he said in reply to the one who told him, "Who is my mother? 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 heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother" (Matthew 12: 46-50).
This is actually a great compliment that Jesus pays to his Mother because she always did God’s will. She was never selfish or lazy. God always came first in her life. What a marvelous example for each one of us.
Mary, my Mother, help me to follow your example. I love you and admire you.
