St. Peter of Verona
How important is your family? Take a look at the number of family relationship references in the readings today.
One more thing: Paul addresses the crowd as, "My brothers, children of the family of Abraham." Jesus talks about his Father and the psalmist celebrates the Son. Salvation history takes place within the context of family. Society tries to tell you that family doesn't matter and that being a mom isn't important. However, by nurturing your family, you are doing the work of God.
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for the gift of my family. Be with me as I do your work within my home, so that my children will know your Son and the way to you. St. Peter of Verona, pray for me. Amen.
