The Book of the Prophet Micah 7: 14-15, 18-20

7:14 With your rod, pasture your people, the flock of your inheritance, living alone in the narrow forest, in the midst of Carmel. They will graze in Bashan and Gilead, as in the ancient days.
7:15 As in the days of your departure from the land of Egypt, I will reveal miracles to him.
7:18 What God is like you, who takes away iniquity and passes over the sin of the remnant of your inheritance? No longer will he send forth his fury, because he is willing to be merciful.
7:19 He will turn back and have mercy on us. He will put away our iniquities, and he will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
7:20 You will give the truth to Jacob, mercy to Abraham, which you swore to our fathers from the ancient days.


Matthew 12: 46- 50

12:46 While he was still speaking to the crowds, behold, his mother and his brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak with him.
12:47 And someone said to him: “Behold, your mother and your brothers are standing outside, seeking you.”
12:48 But responding to the one speaking to him, he said, “Which one is my mother, and who are my brothers?”
12:49 And extending his hand to his disciples, he said: “Behold: my mother and my brothers.
12:50 For anyone who does the will of my Father, who is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”
