Today's reflection speaks to how we relate with one another, creating local, regional, national and in these days of instant communication, international culture through shared experiences. In focusing on the commonalities - joys of birth, sorrows of death, sharing food at major events in life - we create bonds that explain that we are all children of God. And as with all siblings, we argue at times, but in focusing on the concept of family, perhaps we can increase our understanding, or simply accept that we have differences and learn to celebrate them too. Our ability to have a feast of family is up to us - one person at a time.
