Jesus said: Whoever does not hate his father and his mother cannot become my disciple. And whoever does not hate his brothers and sisters and take up his cross in my way will not be worthy of me.

Whoever does not hate his father and his mother in my way cannot become my disciple. And whoever does not love his father and his mother in my way cannot become my disciple. For my mother [...], but my true mother gave me life.
