The Third Word – A NEW FAMILY

On this third Sunday in Lent we will reflect on how Jesus redefined family during his life and ministry, and as he hung dying on the cross.  From the cross, Jesus looked down and through his words and actions established a new family.  “Woman, behold your son!” he tells his mother Mary, nodding to his disciple John.  Then he says to John while looking at Mary, “Behold your mother!” (John 19:26-27)  The church is a family defined not by natural kinship but by Christ’s love poured out freely upon all.  Ponder that!
