With the Birth of Jesus, a family is born. The family of Mary and Joseph, but also the family of God. For with the birth of Jesus, and the life and ministry to follow, comes the opportunity for all people to be born anew. Mary and Joseph are not our parents, but through grace, Jesus becomes our brother. The son born to Mary and Joseph is also the Son of God, and through the grace of God we are received as God's sons and daughters.
