‘Here are my mother and my brothers.’

Much as we love and identify with our biological family, we need to be reminded (in the Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko’s words) that we are connected through our navels with all the tribes of humankind. As Christians we need to be further reminded that we have a special and intimate relationship with Christ and with one another through our baptism - a relationship appropriately described in familial terms.

It is never more clearly expressed than when, as brothers and sisters, we seek in harmony and mutual love to do the will of God; for then ‘the Spirit itself testifies together with our spirit that we are indeed God’s children’ (Romans 8:16). Our mantra today might well be Dante’s line: ‘In his will is our peace.’
