Do not switch off for even a second or you will miss this, the shortest of the Gospel readings in the Liturgy of the Church. Even though it is short, it still contains much for us to reflect upon. What does it mean that so often large crowds gathered around Jesus presumably making it very difficult for Him to live a normal life? Perhaps this is an indication of the power of His preaching and the sincerity and integrity of His life. Why then does Jesus? family think that He is out of His mind? Perhaps they were simply unable to understand or cope with all of the attention coming their way? Whatever the case, let us pray that we will not have the same difficulties that they encountered.
God?s special verse/thought for me today________________

READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Exodus 21-24
OUT OF HIS MIND BUT NOT OUT OF HIS HEART
Jesus was out of His mind, His relatives thought so. Indeed, He was! Jesus was out of His mind because it was His heart, not His mind that He used in attending to the great crowd that followed Him. Had He used His mind, He would have sent the crowd away so that He could have time to eat and relax. But He kept the crowd, teaching and curing them, because His heart was moved with pity at their sight: they were like sheep without a shepherd (cf. Mk 6:34).
