One Bread, One Body - Reflection for October 20, 2016


"That is why I kneel before the Father from Whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name; and I pray." –Ephesians 3:14-16

Jesus is the second Person of the Trinity. The Trinity is the eternal, ultimate Holy Family. After His Incarnation, Jesus lived in another holy family with Mary and Joseph. Therefore, Jesus has high standards for family life. He calls families to be holy, sacramental signs of the Trinity as Family.

To make holy, Trinitarian families, Jesus:

Jesus is offering each of us the miracle of a holy, Trinitarian family. Accept His offer by accepting Him as Savior and Lord of your life and your family.

PRAYER: Father, make my family a miracle and Your masterpiece.
PROMISE: "To Him Whose power now at work in us can do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine..." –Eph 3:20
PRAISE: St. Paul of the Cross and his Passionist priests have evangelized far beyond Italy. He had a special ministry to the sick, the dying, the lapsed, and the sinner needing reconciliation.
