"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

Baptized into Christ, we belong to him; we are his relatives, as close to him as his own Mother. This call, this reality is astounding truth and privilege and brings with it familial obligations and duties. We belong to Christ Jesus and he to us. As he expects much of us, we dare to depend on him for everything. Indeed, he is Everything.
