Gospel text (Mk 3:20-21): Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.” Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat. When his relatives heard of this they set out to seize him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.”

Today something happens to Jesus that may also happen to you: you may be considered a mere fool because you love God and live your religion. Even your best friends and acquaintances may make fun of you. It can happen! It wouldn’t be the first time.

— Do not be discouraged. If this ever happens to you, do not be surprised. Do not be reactive, smile instead, be patient, pray for them… like the Master did! Jesus overcomes all things with his patience.
