Click here to download and listen to this homily (11 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Today David dances before the Lord as the Ark is brought into Jerusalem. Jesus' mother and siblings/cousins show up to take him home. Jesus proclaims that God's family is a lot bigger that blood ties when he says, "For whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother." St Francis de Sales showed through his life and writings that everyone is called and able to live the devout life and there by be a sibling of Jesus.
