See What Love

I know that the holiday for gratitude was last month. However, I feel a swell of gratitude for family, friends, and faith community this year.

A cycle C reading for Holy Family, in part, covers the whole meaning for me:

See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. (1 John 3:1)

Jesus, in taking on flesh, has become a brother to all, and so we are grafted by adoption into his holy family. And so, blessed Christmas to all my siblings out there. Every one.
