A NEW FAMILY IN CHRIST

We often forget that the Last Supper was a family affair, because after all that they had been through with Jesus, and all that they had left behind, the apostles had become a family.

Families are groups of people who are bonded by love, time, sharing and concern for the other.  In a special way, we are created as a new family in Christ.  Together, we share a meal and we look out for one another.  By doing so, we give witness to God.

However many of us are like Peter in the story:  we don’t want to accept help or service.  But we learn from experience as well as from the Gospel – service brings joy.  By design, we are made to serve one another.
