John Foley, SJ
Jesus is preaching, but his “relatives” come to “seize” him because “he is out of his mind.” Picture it. Who are these relatives? They seem to be identified as “his mother and his brothers”!
Playing Loose with the Truth
Satan is the Prince of Lies and Jesus makes it clear that, among all sins, failure to acknowledge the truth is far and away the most dangerous.
Fear and Forgiveness
Wouldn’t you fear that if you faced God, your sins would just seem worse because you would see them in the light of God’s holiness?
Adam and Eve sinned and because they had free will. We still sin. There is no garden of Eden anymore but did God the Father give us anything that makes our home on earth a holy place?
