Family

Come & See

For Christians the pattern and ideal of family life is found in the Scriptures. God is the loving parent of the human family and Jesus was born and lived in a human family.

Word of God:

“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive. Above all clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body.” (Colossians 3: 12-15)

 

Father, creator of all,

you ‘ordered the earth’ to bring forth life
and crowned its goodness by

creating family life.

Teach us the beauty of human love,
show us the value of family life

and help us to live in peace
with everyone.
Amen.
