Gospel Reflection

All who eat your flesh and drink your blood
live in you and you in them;
for your flesh is the food we need,
your blood is our salvation;
all who eat your flesh and drink your blood have eternal life.

Look to Jesus in the wilderness,
breaking bread and feeding the multitude.

Gospel Reading - Jesus’ mother

19 Once when his mother and brothers came to see him, they couldn’t get into the house where he was teaching because of the crowds. 20When Jesus heard they were standing outside and wanted to see him, 21he remarked, “My mother and my brothers are all those who hear the message of God and obey it.”

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
     hallowed be your name,
     your kingdom come,
     your will be done,
          on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
     as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
     and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
     now and for ever.
