By Fr. Peter Vecellio, O.C.D.
In the Catholic world, this past Sunday was known as Trinity Sunday. God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit reveals Himself to us as family. And He is so overflowing with His familial love that He wants to replicate it over and over again in the human family. When the Book of Genesis tells us that man is created in the image and likeness of God, it means that He created us as family. The family is the image of God on earth. This is why the family is so under attack in our modern world. The devil wants to erase, destroy, or distort any image of God or even remembrance of God on earth. Notice how all of our moral evils today involve destroying or distorting this image of God: abortion, birth control, euthanasia, divorce, gay marriage, and even gender confusion.
