One household

We are all united into one family of God — not only the faithfuls of today, but also those who went before us like the saints, the prophets, the apostles, and, most especially, Jesus Christ.

I love the message of today’s first reading of belonging to one household of God:

“You are … members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.” — Ephesians 2:19-20

We are all united into one family of God — not only the faithfuls of today, but also those who went before us like the saints, the prophets, the apostles, and, most especially, Jesus Christ.

Whenever you are feeling lost, remember that you have a household, a family that you can always turn to. While some have already gone before you, you can always learn from how they lived their lives and remained faithful along the way. They are like our parents, grandparents, and even ancestors in the faith, in the family of God.
