12th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Have you ever been accused of being like your parents? Usually, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. On this Father's Day weekend, Jesus asks his disciples, and us, "Who do you say that I am?" If we take Jesus at His word, then we believe that He is the Son of God the Father, and that in Jesus we are also sons and daughters of a heavenly Father. Jesus was like His Dad: "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father." As followers of Jesus, as sons and daughters of God, do we live and act and talk in such a way that others can accuse us of being like our heavenly Father?!
