“You cannot have God for your Father if you do not have the Church for your mother.... God is one and Christ is one, and his Church is one; one is the faith, and one is the people cemented together by harmony into the strong unity of a body.... If we are the heirs of Christ, let us abide in the peace of Christ; if we are the sons of God, let us be lovers of peace” (St. Cyprian, The Unity of the Catholic Church).
One more thing: Today is an emotion filled day for many. The anniversary that we remember is still charged with anger and hate, grief and longing. What I teach my children about today is a litmus test of my Christianity. Is my fruit a reflection of my rootstock?
Prayer: Dear Jesus, help be to be truly genuine in my profession of faith in you, so that my actions reflect my belief. Bless those who mourn today and help us all to be lovers of peace. In your precious name I pray, Amen. St. Cyprian, pray for me.
