For whoever does the will of my father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother. - Matthew 12:50
On this extra day tucked into our year may we have the grace to see the power of our Jesus who upends His world of family ties by stretching those bonds to include others. Our safe little nuclear units are challenged to grow wider so that they might include all those on a road to God. If we could truly believe this and act accordingly we could change the world.
Let us pray for the courage to see what these words are asking us to do and to be.
