Christ, Everywhere

Last week we celebrated the Feast of St. Francis, and today’s First Reading brings to us the story of creation of woman and a short discourse on marriage.

We are all created in God’s image and likeness, and we are all His children. It’s easy to see God in my seven month daughter, as she smiles back at you, but how easy is it to see in your political opponent? We’re quick to judge those around us, or that senator in media reports, but how often do we pause to look for Christ in them?

First Reading: Genesis 2:18-24

Second Reading: Hebrews 2:9-11

Gospel: Mark 10:2-16
