Yes, he had brothers!
The kind of prayer I practice is imaginative conversation and lately my conversations have been with the Jesus who's in The Gospel of John movie, probably because he seems so familiar - he was also Desmond in LOST :) Here's what Sacred Space, the Irish Jesuit prayer site, says of this kind of prayer ....
Conversing with Jesus
"Imagine you see Jesus sitting close to you. In doing this you are putting your imagination at the service of your faith. Jesus isn't here in the way you are imagining him, but he certainly is here, and your imagination helps to make you aware of this. Now, speak to Jesus .... if no one is around, speak out in a soft voice .... Listen to what Jesus says to you in reply, or what you imagine him to say .... That is the difference between thinking and praying. When we think, we generally talk to ourselves. When we pray, we talk to God."
- Anthony de Mello SJ, Sadhana pages 78-79
Saint Ignatius calls this conversation a 'colloquy', and says:
A colloquy is made, properly speaking, in the way one friend speaks to another, or a servant to one in authority - now begging a favour, now accusing oneself of some misdeed, now telling one's concerns and asking counsel about them. .... In the colloquies we ought to converse and beg according to the subject matter; that is, in accordance with whether I find myself tempted or consoled, desire to possess one virtue or another, or to dispose myself in one way or another, or to experience sorrow or joy over the matter I am contemplating. And finally I ought to ask for what I more earnestly desire in regard to some particular matters.
- The Spiritual Exercises nos 54, 199
Here's another clip from the movie. This part starts with Jesus miraculously feeding thousands, then walking on water, then he gives a crowd the 'bread of life' talk, and then he speaks in the synagogue, later many of his disciples leave hiim, and finally he goes back home and does a little carpentry while his brothers (gasp - yes, he had brothers! :) try to taunt him into going to Jerusalem ....
