First Reading

Sing, rejoice, daughter of Zion, for now I am coming to live among you—Yahweh declares! And on that day many nations will be converted to Yahweh. Yes, they will become his people, and they will live among you. Then you will know that Yahweh Sabaoth has sent me to you! Yahweh will take possession of Judah, his portion in the Holy Land, and again make Jerusalem his choice. Let all people be silent before Yahweh, now that he is stirring from his holy Dwelling!

Zechariah 2:14-17


Jesus was speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him. But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’

Matthew 12:46-50
