Fr Greg finds today’s gospel showing the tenderness of Jesus a perfect fit for Mother’s Day. Just as God is our Father, so God is also our mother.
The word of God continued to spread,
and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly;
even a large group of priests were becoming obedient to the faith.
Come to him, a living stone, rejected by human beings
but chosen and precious in the sight of God.
1 Pt 2:4-9
Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled … I am going to prepare a place for you … I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.”
